“A man can experience moments in his life which can overwhelm him with grief and affect his spirit deeply. I came across such difficult moments when I saw Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai; and his brother Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai; placing the body of their elder brother Shaikh Rashid in the grave at Umm Hurair cemetery on Saturday evening,” wrote Mohammed Abdullah Al Gergawi last year, for online Arabic website 24.ae.
