Saudi Arabia celebrates 80th National Day

Thursday, September 23, 2010 09:17:54 PM, Agencies

Riyadh: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia September 23 celebrated its 80th National Day.


On this occasion, President of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities Prince Sultan bin Salman commended the country’s leaders for pursuing a national development policy that has enabled the Kingdom to make substantial achievements in all fields.

“The Saudi leadership has set cultural and economic developments as key objectives to be achieved through its sustained support for modern projects, new plans and regulations in line with the rapid developments taking place in the outside world,” the prince said in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).


“During the current era of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah, the Kingdom has been witnessing enormous achievements and developments making the Kingdom a model state with additional stress on Islam and original Arab culture,” said President General of the Youth Welfare Presidency Prince Sultan bin Fahd.


He also described King Abdullah’s reign as an era of all-round progress.

Assistant Minister of Culture and Information Prince Turki bin Sultan underscored the significance of the day as a historical, cultural, and humanitarian occasion.


He added that the Kingdom’s founder King Abdul Aziz was a well-accomplished political leader who helped revive Islamic values and applied Islamic Shariah.

Chairman of the Shoura Council Abdullah Al-Asheikh noted that the Kingdom has been striving to preserve fundamental Islamic principles and following the path paved by King Abdul Aziz.


He added that the king has initiated a culture of dialogue both at home and abroad and has been working to protect human rights in accordance with the law.

“The strategic partnership between our two brotherly countries is deeply rooted in history and the relations have always been cordial and unique,” said Pakistan’s Ambassador to the Kingdom Umar Khan Alisherzai.


“The government and people of Pakistan highly appreciated the generosity and help of the Kingdom during the recent floods. Saudi Arabia has always supported Pakistan in difficult times,” he added.

Meanwhile, Saudi flags were selling like hot cakes across the Kingdom on Wednesday. Flags of varying sizes and other types of Saudi memorabilia, such as caps and stickers carrying the national emblem of two swords and a palm tree, have been in great demand.

Car body workshops have also been busy over the last week decorating the cars of young Saudis with the color green and using the Saudi logo.

Picture of the Day

Due to the threats of riot and terror attacks, the festive season in India nowadays results in sleepless nights for the security personnel. Against this backdrop, the show of communal harmony in Malegaon by Ajantha Mandal cannot be more timely. The Mandal in a large hoarding portrays the real picture of the Muslim dominated textile town in North Maharashtra. It shows, Malegaon is where Azan in a Masjid and Shunkh in a Mandir go simultaneously. To further make its point, the Mandal plays communal harmony songs on a cassette-player in its full sound.
