UAE Launches World’s First Tolerance Charter

Positive thinking is key to combating destructive elements and eradicating bigotry, racism, extremism and terrorism

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE) things are bigger than usual, like the tallest building in the world in Dubai, the Burj Khalifa (829 meters- see photo below).

This country has visions, and implements them too.

It is even more creative than most Western states, an Islamic Lighthouse at the Gulf.

This prosperous Islamic country is the front-runner in creative politics. Inspired by GLOBALO founder Dr Hubertus Hoffmann – who was the first to propose the establishment of a new Minister of Tolerance in his Arab book Codes of Tolerance in the capital Abu Dhabi in 2015 (picture above at the Abu Dhabi Book Fair) – Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai established the first State Minister of Tolerance in February 2016.

Al Maktoum explained: “The new appointed ministers will drive policy to create social good and satisfaction. We have now more ministers capable of dealing with change. We want a young and flexible government that will fulfill our youth’s aspirations and achieve our people’s ambitions.”

Since than Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi (pictured below) is planing and promoting to enhance tolerance in the UAE.

The programme has set up a Council of Tolerance, which will develop policies to promote tolerance locally, regionally and internationally.

More countries should follow the UAE soon, actively promoting tolerance.
