53rd Dai of the Dawoodi Bohra community,Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin’s interview on the inauguration of the new Suez Canal in Cairo.
Cairo : On the personal invitation of the President and the Government of Egypt, His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin participated in the inauguration of the new Suez Canal which is believed to symbolise the development and progress of Egypt. While speaking about the new Suez Canal, His Holiness commented that “The Canal is the miracle of mankind which should be venerated rightfully”.
Looking from a bird’s eye view from an aircraft, it seems to be a desert. But now, it seems like it has come alive. All this is due to the taufeeq from Allah and the hard work put in by the people of Egypt who have indeed made the impossible possible!
Referring to the economic benefits of the Canal, Syedna said “Egypt has benefited from its strategic and geographical location. Now, due to the new Suez Canal, it has become a center for international trade and business, as it offers favourable opportunities for commerce”.
Praising president Abdel Fattah al- Sisi, Syedna Saifuddin asserted “Al-Sisi, apart from being the President of Egypt, is also an upcoming leader in the Arab and Islamic world. Due to his unique leadership qualities, he is being looked upon by world leaders as a symbol of change and progress”.
Achieving such an impossible goal in a short period of time, that to in times of political trials and tribulations, proves President Al-Sisi’s will and determination for the prosperity of Egypt.
In spite of all the challenges, Egypt under his leadership has achieved its goals, paving the way for being a developed and self reliant nation.
