  1. Thank you, Salmia in Kuwait for being the role model in displaying the secular values so that people of Christian faith can celebrate the Feast of Easter in a grand scale with all the best of facilities that you have so kindly made available. The name Salmia is very dear to us because almost each month when we drove from Saudi Arabia to Kuwait by road via the Zarghani check post in the Neautral Zone, we used to pass thru Salmia first prior to our entering the busy City of Kuwait.

    What a great pleasure to witness the Easter celebrations and see so many hundreds of prosperous Indians celebrating their Easter with the best of choir and best of Indian audience. May God continue to give the best of peace and unity in Kuwait, and may the renowned Al Sabha family enjoy the continued blessings from God for their continued growth and prosperity in all their future plans and programs.

    Kuwait is a great City with some of the great people of all nationalities and backgrounds. Kuwait is indeed in a strategic location that has to continue demonstrating the beauty of peace and tranquility, and the world at large is watching this glamorous Sheikhdom with a whisper of prayer for continued peace and harmony. “Assalam Aleqhum” and Qudha Afez with a word of gratitude for Kuwait for a job well done.
