Sharjah24: On the occasion of Martyr's Day, Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, stated:
"Martyr's Day carries flashbacks, before our eyes, of the sacrifices our martyred countrymen in defending the soil of their beloved homeland. In doing so, they made the most honourable sacrifices and disseminated their life in the nation's path that was not parsimonious to them. Their loyalty was loftier, and their sacrifices extended the path of the loyal forefathers, who instilled patriotism, pride, and dignity in the souls of their children, forging the meanings of unity and solidarity via words and deeds, presenting their country role models for other countries to follow, in a united and progressive nation for which its people would sacrifice their lives."
"Martyr's Day is a purely national occasion, in which loyalty is linked to growth, sacrifice to progress, and commitment to continue on the path of prosperity. It is an inherited legacy that the fathers keep passing on to their offspring and future generations. It is a day of appreciation for the sacrifices of our brave heroes to defend the soil of the land on which we live and for the UAE society to live safe and sound."
