Wed, 2019-02-20 08:12 DUBAI: India and Saudi Arabia’s relationship will be maintained for thousands of years, the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said after ceremonial welcoming in New Delhi on Wednesday. Stopping briefly to speak to journalists, he said his visit to India would improve centuries-old ties which he said are “in our DNA.” “We want to be sure India and Saudi Arabia’s relationship is maintained for thousands of years,” the crown prince said, flanked by India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind. “I believe there’s a lot of Saudi work in India,” he added. The crown prince also met with India's Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj to discuss bilateral relations between the two countries. The crown prince, who arrived in India on Tuesday night after visiting Pakistan, will take part in talks with Modi that are expected to be wide-ranging. The countries' two-way trade totaled $27.5 billion last year. The prime minister will also host a lunch for the visiting dignitaries, while in the evening President Ram Nath Kovind will host a banquet in honor of the Saudi crown prince, who is accompanied by a high-level delegation that includes ministers, senior officials and leading Saudi businessmen.

Excellent relationship with Saudi Arabia augurs well for Hajj, Umrah pilgrims from India

Wed, 2019-02-20 00:40 NEW DELHI: Prominent Muslims in India have told Arab News the visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has redefined their relationship with Riyadh. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sought to use the country’s fast-growing economy to attract more investment from Islamic nations, particularly Saudi Arabia. Muslims make up 14 percent of India’s population. Last year, a record 175,000 of them traveled to Makkah for Hajj. Zafarul Islam Khan, the chairman of the Delhi Minority Commission, said he hoped stronger bilateral ties would be an advantage for Muslims. “Muslims in India go to Saudi for Hajj and Umrah, and a good relationship between New Delhi and Riyadh assures we will be treated well and given respect,” he said.  He added that the crown prince had sparked a lot of curiosity with his reform measures — aimed at diversifying the economy and opening up the Kingdom culturally — and that people in India, particularly Muslims, were keen to see what deals and agreements would be signed during his visit. “Muslims in India think very highly of the Saudi-Indian relationship,” said Khan. “The process of redefining the India and Saudi Arabia relationship started long ago. Now what is happening is the consolidation.” Andalib Akhtar, a New Delhi-based journalist and editor of The Indian Awaz, described the crown prince’s visit as special. “For any Muslim, it’s a dream to go to Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj or Umrah,” she said.  “It is also a destination for many Indians who seek employment.” According to Pew Research Center data, India is the world’s top recipient of migrant remittances. Almost $69 billion was sent back to the country in 2015 and $10.5 billion of this sum was from Saudi Arabia. Dr. Tasleem Ahmed Rehmani, from the Muslim Political Council of India, said Saudi Arabia’s reputation for promoting a conservative form of Islam had changed in recent years.  “The crown prince’s reformist measures have been received positively in the country,” he told Arab News, adding that Saudi Arabia had previously been considered close to Pakistan but that it was now regarded as “a great ally and very dependable strategic partner.” Shaukat Azam, a university student in the eastern Indian city of Patna, said Saudi Arabia should invest in modern schools in India rather than building more seminaries and mosques. “The Saudis have been building madrasahs (seminaries) and mosques for a long time now. It is time that investment is made in constructing modern schools and colleges,” he told Arab News. He also said Muslim families depended on earnings from their relatives working in the Kingdom, and that Saudi Arabia was a “savior” for many. “I have heard a lot about the crown prince and I hope his visit will not only redefine his relations with the country but also with the Muslim population in general.” Shabuddin Yaqub, a media professional, said Muslims in India owed a lot to Riyadh. “Almost 200,000 people go for Hajj in Saudi Arabia every year, plus many go for Umrah,” he told Arab News. “Indian Muslims get good respect in Saudi Arabia.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaCrown Prince Asia tour Saudi Crown prince’s India visit will help expand ties beyond energyThe Saudi businessman who made India his home

Saudi Crown prince’s India visit will help expand ties beyond energy

Wed, 2019-02-20 00:51 NEW DELHI: Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s first visit to India is a landmark development in bilateral ties between India and Saudi Arabia, according to Talmiz Ahmad, a former ambassador to Riyadh. Saudi Arabia is India’s largest supplier of crude oil, but since taking office in 2014 Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sought to use India’s growing economy to attract more investment from Saudi Arabia beyond energy, and foster cooperation on trade, infrastructure and defense. Ahmad, author of several books on the Arab world and twice India’s Ambassador to Riyadh, said that while the backbone of New Delhi’s relationship with the Kingdom is energy, the two sides had been discussing “how to give greater substance and longevity to the relationship on the basis of concrete projects.” Reuters reported this week that India is expecting Prince Salman to announce an initial investment in its National Investment and Infrastructure Fund, a quasi-sovereign wealth fund, to help accelerate the building of ports and highways. Saudi Arabia has also suggested investing in India’s farming industry, with an eye on food imports to the Kingdom.  Ahmad said Saudi Arabia’s NEOM project, a $500 billion smart city in Tabuk province on the Egyptian and Jordanian borders, would also provide great opportunities for Indian companies.  He added that Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, the crown prince’s blueprint to fundamentally transform Kingdom’s economy, presents another opportunity for Indian businesses to prosper from the relationship. “India is extremely well placed,” said Ahmad. “We are world leaders in small and medium enterprises and in the services sector. Saudi Arabia also has proposals to develop its tourism and leisure sectors, and I believe India is also well placed in those areas too.” He also discussed how the strategic partnership had been initiated by former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who visited Riyadh in 2010, but that Modi, who visited in 2016, had added “considerable substance” to the relationship. He stressed, though, that Riyadh’s ties with India are independent of its relationship with Pakistan. He added India and Saudi Arabia were also working together to improve the security situation in Afghanistan, to resolve the 17-year conflict between government forces and the Afghan Taliban, as well as in the wider West Asia region.  “India has excellent relations with all the countries in West Asia, and New Delhi is well placed to address some of the concerns that all the countries have with each other,” he said.

Al-Ula Royal Commission launches second phase of university scholarship program

Author: Arab NewsID: 1550580740444867500Tue, 2019-02-19 15:51JEDDAH: The Royal Commission for Al-Ula has launched the second phase of its overseas scholarship program, giving students the chance to study at universities in the US, UK, France and Australia. The program is intended to broaden the horizons of Saudi students, creating more rounded graduates with wider experiences of foreign cultures and practices.The students will also learn the languages of their host countries, which will aid them in later life depending on what path they choose, and encouraging interaction and exchanges between the Al-Ula region and the rest of the world.Rami Al-Sakran, capabilities development manager for the commission, said the Al-Ula scholarship program was one of four strands in a community development plan. “We have four different units, sector planning and business licensing so that covers economic development, with community engagement and human capability under the social development plan,” he told Arab News.The second phase of the scholarship program will run for five years following the positive response to the first phase, which was launched last year. The second phase has been expanded to accommodate 300 students and is open to all genders.Last September, 165 students were sent to the US, UK and France with Australia to focus on fields such as hospitality, tourism, agriculture, archaeology and heritage.Many residents from the area had migrated to larger cities because of the lack of job opportunities, he said, so it was important to engage and employ locals first.“We’ll flood the equation. We’ll see people coming in and our priority is the local community and to provide them with jobs. We want these jobs that we’ll create to be filled by the locals first.“We’ve currently provided jobs, whether directly or indirectly, some of them temporary and others permanent. At Winter in Tantora, we have volunteers, ushers, drivers as this is seasonal but we’ve established a database and some jobs are permanent, whether they’re directly employed by our CEO or some contract.”Al-Sakran said locals were key to the success of turning Al-Ula into a major tourist destination.“Locals, locals, locals. Without the locals, we can’t succeed. We have a very transparent relationship, it’s a two-way street with them. We cooperate with them and communicate with them on every basis. We have a strong relationship with the governor of Al-Ula and we listen to the locals.“Whether it was our social or economical development, as you can see Winter in Tantora has a major socio-economic impact on the area and ... the locals are working everywhere here and that’s what we want. It’s theirs. We’ll unveil it to the Kingdom ... that’s the idea, to make it a strong and significant destination for all.” Main category: Saudi Arabia

The Saudi businessman who made India his home

Tue, 2019-02-19 23:29 JEDDAH: The relationship between Saudi Arabia and India is rooted in decades of shared history. The Kingdom’s merchant families, especially those from Jeddah, played a key role in maintaining and strengthening the relationship long before India attained independence from British rule in 1947. One leading figure was Mohammed Ali Zainal Alireza, whose love for India, and more specifically Bombay (now Mumbai), was unparalleled. He arrived in the city at the age of 11 and lived there until he died in 1969. He, along with his brothers, looked after his father’s businesses, mostly in shipping, before he started his own: He became a well-known diamond and pearl merchant. The who’s who of Bombay during this time, from former Prime Minister Morarji Desai to Bollywood legend Dilip Kumar, knew him personally. His is a fascinating tale of how one man single-handedly promoted the interests of Saudi Arabia in India during the republic’s formative years. Arab News tracked down one of his three daughters, Amina, in Jeddah. She has vivid memories of the good old days at her father’s offices in the Sitaram Building in Crawford Market, including how her father arranged a grand party in honor of King Saud when he visited the city in 1955. “My father came from a business family. His father, my grandfather, Zainal Alireza was a very prominent businessman in Jeddah. They had huge business interests in India. My grandmother was from the Zahid family, also famous business people. My grandmother’s name was Amina and, therefore, my father named me after her,” she told Arab News. Amina said her father was a very generous man. “He was passionate about education. He was a philanthropist. He was not like many ordinary businessmen who only cared for profits and making money. He would distribute all that he had to the needy. He gave a great deal of prime real estate here in Jeddah and in Bombay to charity, keeping nothing for himself. That was the way he was,” she said. She added that he was not happy with the fact there were no schools in Jeddah that taught Arabic when he was growing up, as Jeddah was then under Ottoman rule. “There was only one school — a Turkish one in which there were only Turkish teachers and Turkish students,” she said. “Thus, when he was 19, he got the idea of opening a school, which he called Madrasat Al-Falah, in Jeddah’s historic Al-Balad district. It is still there today.” She recalled that opening any non-Turkish school in Jeddah during the days of Ottoman rule was a risky business. “The school was conducted in secrecy. Parents were reluctant to send their children to his school so my father used to give the parents money and, in return, he would ask them to send their children to school. Sometimes he would go himself and bring the children to school,” said Amina. She added that her father later opened many schools in Makkah, Dubai and Mumbai. “Everything in Madrasat Al-Falah in Bombay was for free — the education, food, etc. Everything was paid for by my father.” Amina said her father wanted to go to the famous Al-Azhar University in Cairo for higher studies. “His father would not allow him to do so as he wanted him to be part of the business. He went to Al-Azhar but his father called him back. He then went to India but his father called him back from India as well with the promise that he would allow him to pursue his dream project of opening a school. He returned to Jeddah and worked on the school project,” she said. Mohammed Ali’s wife, Amina’s mother, was British. Her name was Ruby Elsie Jackson and her Muslim name was Aisha. So how did they meet? “My father was a well-established businessman and people respected him. In London, he had a secretary who had a sister and she told my father about her sister. They met and my father liked her and so they married in London. This was when the Second World War was going on. I was born around that time in Paris. We had to leave London because of the war. I was only 10 months old when we returned to Bombay,” said Amina, who is now a proud mother to three sons and a daughter. Her two sisters were born in India, but then came the partition of the country. “Bombay used to have many Arab merchant families. During the events of 1947, they all left and came back to Saudi Arabia. My father loved India and Indians and that is why he refused to leave,” she said. Among the top Indian politicians that Mohammed Ali counted among his friends were Jawaharlal Nehru, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Morarji Desai and Y.B. Chavan. “They all respected my father and he loved them. He respected people from every religion,” she said. “Whoever from the Gulf visited India, my father took care of their accommodation, food and all other expenses. Sheikh Sultan of Sharjah was a guest of my father in Bombay. Yusuf Al-Fawzan, the ambassador of Saudi Arabia in those days, visited my father regularly.” Amina said that every Wednesday at her father’s palatial office, people from all walks of life would assemble and share their work and stories. “It was quite an event in Bombay in those days. The guests were served sweets and almond tea.” Perhaps the most interesting anecdote that Amina recalled about her father was the personal visit paid to him by Bollywood actor Kumar. “Dilip Kumar came personally to my father’s place to deliver the invitation card to his marriage to Bollywood actress Saira Bano. Those were the days,” she said. Before his death in 1969, Mohammed Ali made a wish that he should be buried wherever he breathed his last. “Since he died in Bombay, he was laid to rest in a cemetery in Chandanwadi,” Amina said.

India looks to Saudi crown prince for historic $1bn pledge

Author: Tue, 2019-02-19 23:37  NEW DELHI: Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is expected to announce a $1 billion investment in India’s infrastructure and farming sectors during his first visit to the South Asian nation, experts said. The crown prince arrived in New Delhi on Tuesday to a warm reception. India is hoping the crown prince will announce an investment in its National Investment Infrastructure Fund (NIIF), a sovereign wealth fund that includes private companies and foreign investors. The fund focuses on upgrading India’s infrastructure, including railways and highways. “We can expect a commitment of around $1 billion,” said Dr. Muddassir Quamar, an associate fellow at the Institute for Defense Studies and Analyses, a New Delhi-based think tank. India and Saudi Arabia have traditionally had friendly relations which Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sought to strengthen in recent years in a bid to improve ties with major Muslim nations.   The Kingdom is India’s top energy supplier and home to more than 3.5 million Indian expatriates. Much of bilateral trade between New Delhi and Riyadh has been based on energy, but both countries are now seeking to broaden ties.  Earlier this week, the Saudi Press Agency said the Kingdom was considering an investment deal in NIIF. Meanwhile, India announced that its Cabinet had approved an agreement between the two countries on investment in infrastructure. However, Talmiz Ahmad, a former Indian ambassador to Saudi Arabia, said it is up to New Delhi to take advantage of the opportunity and make sure it gets the investment. “There is plenty of room for investment in infrastructure, but the perception across the region is that India is not business friendly,” Ahmad said. “We need to improve things like acquisition of land, the tax regime and to speed up approvals.” Apart from investments in energy, India also expects to see deals in agriculture.  India already exports cereals and agricultural products to the Kingdom, and can be an additional source of Saudi food security, Quamar said.  “We talk a lot about promoting joint ventures,” said Ahmad. “But none of them has any meaning if the region is mired in terrorism.”  Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaCrown Prince Asia tourIndia Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman touches down in India The Saudi businessman who made India his home
