Crown Prince sits by roadside with 'lost' girl till dad arrives

Abu Dhabi, Jan 30 (Emirates 24/7): Abu Dhabi residents and motorists were greeted with a sight they are unlikely to see again.

General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, was sitting calmly by the side of the road.

However, that was just the beginning of the story.

In another incident that shows the great humility and love that the leaders of the UAE have for their people -  it transpires that Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed was driving in Abu Dhabi when he saw the girl outside a school looking around as though she was lost.

Sheikh Mohammed parked his car and went with his assistant to the girl, asking if she was lost and offering to drive to her home.

The little girl replied that her father was supposed to pick her up and she was waiting for him.

She then responded that she could not accept the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi’s offer to drive her home because her dad told her not to speak to strangers.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed’s assistant then told the little girl that this was no stranger and went on to introduce the Crown Prince.

The girl answered: Yes, I know, but my dad said not to go with any strangers.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed then smiled he decided to wait next to the girl till her father showed-up.

The picture here was taken by one of the school teachers.

The story first broke on a UAE Facebook page and the plaudits and comments began to flow in.


Comments left on the page included:

Veera Sequeira wrote: So down to earth!

While Sherif Embabi added: Like son like father. God bless him and God bless UAE.

Demetra Gargasoulas added: What a true gentleman! And a very smart little girl!

Rhonda Weese said: “This is why I am in love with everything to do with AD. I love the pride and family feeling you get when you live there,” to which Stacey Barham added: “Everyone should have time to help someone if they need it! Good on him for helping and having morals.”

Emirates 24|7’s Facebook page was quickly filling up with admirers as well.

Tahir Afzal Khan wrote: “What a man. Love you Sir,” while Sufi Muhammad Junooni commented: “Respect to Sheikh Mohammad.”

Francis Fernandes commented: “God bless him!,” and Bilkisu Yaqha adds “That makes him a great leader.”

"Long live the Prince and may his tribe increase". If it was in India, we would have just passed by her or some rogue element would have surfaced from nowhere to take advantage.In today's scenerio We would have looked at a good samaritan with suspicion and perhaps handed him over to the cops for touching her inappropriately. Then my friends cool your heels in the dungeon.

IT IS TRUE THAT HE IS A KING WE HAVE TO PRAY TO THE LORD TO GIVE HIM AND GENERATION FOR GOOD HEALTH. THE YEAR 1986 I HAD A CHANCE AND A LUCK TO SERVE TO THE FOUNDER OF U.A.E. WHEN I WAS WORKING ABUDHABI HILTON I SAW HIM THE WAY HOW HE WAS ADDRESSING THE SUBJECTS OF U.A.E.SINCE LAST 33 YEARS I AM LENDING MY SERVICE IN EMIRATES THIS IS ALSO A GREAT WONDER. WE INDIANS HAVE A GREAT LESSON FROM THIS MORAL GOD SAVE HIS GENERATION.vimith peter mathias/DUBAI.

Good hearted human being and gentleman Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan would make himself a good leader of great arab nation and roll model specially for people like those who raped innocent young girls in India. I always said, if another great leder of Sultanate of Oman HM Qaboos Bin Said ruled India, our country would have become one of the richest.

This great gesture brings back basic question, will it be a pipe dream for us to get such leaders who's crown idea is welfare of their citizen..however small they be!!!

In contrast, we have leaders who do not care to attend accident victims of their own vehicle.

May god give similar wisdom to our leaders.

God bless the good hearted prince. I am not at all surprised by this incident. The local people of UAE, in general, are hospitable and kind. I had experience of a prince coming to my aid. It was in the 70's, I was working for a bank in RAK. One day, I had to go to the HO of the bank in Dubai for a meeting, and was returning back to RAK, around noon. It was peak of summer, and the air outside was like a furnace. I was driving between Sharjah and RAK, when one the tyres of the car burst. I went to change the tyre, but I was struggling due to the heat, hot scorching asphalt road, and burning hot tyre rim. I was defeated and did not know what to do, when a caravan of cars came by. The lead car belonged to Prince of RAK, second in line of succession to Sheikh Saqr Al Qassimi. He stopped his car, and the whole caravan halted. The Prince personally removed the damaged tyre and fixed the spare for me. I was flabbergasted, never imagined a rulers son would help me, and that too, a foreigner and not a local. I had a similar incident, when my car got stuck in sand, but this time they were indians like me, but they did not come to assist me. About fellow Indians, less said the better.

In India the girl would have screamed in panic and a case of attempt to rape would have been charged against the crown prince.
With respect to this great leader may god bless and protect his family in return.

Long live Prince . He is the real prince. In India,politicians are so busy, instead of going in the normal traffic, they want police to stop the traffic to give way to the leaders. What a difference.

This is not strange or unusual as the leaders of UAE are known for their humility and down to earth nature. This includes the Sheikh of dubai as well. Very often these leaders on their visit to the local people are seen sitting on the ground and talking to their people. Hope our Indian leaders are inspired with this. Good leaders are god’s gift to their country and UAE is one of them.

Thank God our state politicians not aware the country like U.A.E. Where mankind can live safely. Female can go where ever they wish any time with out any fear. If they know then there also they will feed their VISHA BHEEJA. Sick with the our dirty politicians specially of KARNATAKA STATE.

Finally my salute and best wishes to Crown Prince of ABU DHABI.

A word of advice to all our politicians. Irrespective of political affliation. Instead of going on stupid foreign trips that only spend our money and with no returns, learn to care for the people who vote for you and bring you to power.
There is a saying in the scriptures: Go to an ant thou sluggard and learn wisdom from it

Even our politicians are humble than the Crown Prince .You just have to look at the way they say Namaste with both their hands joined and humble (greedy with the dreams of money they are about to amass) expression in their eyes when they come asking for your votes to your door steps..with their committed CHAMCHA group always following them..dont you think so ???

That is the greatness of the Crown Prince. His wisdom is exemplary and irrespective of whether the child was a UAE national or from any other nationality, I am sure, the Crown Prince would have done the same. May Almighty Allah, shower his blessings on the Crown Prince, for upholding humanity as the most important religion.

THERESA LOBO, Mukamar-Sharjah

Everyone has to learn lesson from Crown Prince. So, kind,humble and gentleman manners to sit with the girl till her Father arrived. May God bless him and his family in abundance.

No gun-trotting security guards, no caravan of escort cars, no nothing. Just ensuring that the little child is in safe hands. Imagine similar thing happening with our Prince here. The city and traffic would be choked to death.
