Mohideen has worked in the office of the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi for more than 40 years. A video and photo were released on social media showing the appreciation by the Crown Prince and other officials.
India’s ambassador to the UAE, Navdeep Singh Suri, retweeted the video, saying:“Such a noble and gracious gesture by HH Sheikh @MohamedBinZayed toward a long-serving Indian member of his staff. Shows true class.”

The Crown Prince’s acknowledgment has been applauded by the Indian community not only in the UAE but also across the world. “Such a precious moment for the man. An amazing gesture by HH,” tweeted @gargankur22, Ankur Garg, who is based in Dubai.
The UAE is a home to a large number of Indian expatriates. India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, is scheduled to visit Dubai to attend the World Government Summit early next month.
