History Behind Celebrating The United Arab National Day
The United Arab Emirates stands as a powerful nation today. But going back in history, the country has suffered in the terms of trivial revelries, political agendas, and so on. Until 1971, UAE was not recognized as the United Arab Emirate, but the nations were divided, and it was Britain controlling some parts of the land and the tribal societies.
In 1820, Britain stood up to protect the tribes at the cost of some land. Till 1968, Britain managed to maintain peace and resolve the conflicts, but as soon as Britain removed itself from the picture, there were financial losses. It was the rulers of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Al-Ain, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain who later decided to unite and on December 2, 1971, independence was announced. Soon the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was formed as a union of nations, who today are represented as one.
Independence came without any violence, and the merger became an inspiration for the world to achieve freedom without violence. The first president of the UAE, the United Arab Emirates, was Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
