Inclusion of Hindi
The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) has announced that it has extended the adoption of interactive forms of statement of claims filed before courts by including the Hindi language alongside Arabic and English in labour cases.
The inclusion of Hindi language is aimed at helping Hindi speakers to learn about litigation procedures, their rights and duties without a language barrier, in addition to facilitating registration procedures via unified forms available through the ADJD website.
The adoption of multilingual interactive forms for claim sheets, grievances and requests aim to promote judicial services in line with the plan Tomorrow 2021 and increase the transparency of litigation procedure.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone-laying ceremony for construction of first traditional Hindu temple in Al Wathba, Abu Dhabi, the capital city of United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UAE government had allocated land for the temple during PM Modi’s first visit to the gulf country in 2015.
It will be the first traditional Hindu stone temple in the Middle East. The temple design and structure is along the lines of the Akshardham temple in Delhi and other places. It will come up on 55,000 square metres of land. It will include idols of Lord Krishna, Lord Maheshwara, Lord Ayyappa and more.
It will incorporate all aspects and features of a traditional Hindu temple as part of fully functional, social, cultural and spiritual complex. It will be hand-carved by Indian temple artisans and assembled in UAE. It will also feature a garden and a water-front. It will be completed by 2020 and open to people of all religious backgrounds.
