The annual Ramadan pardon is actually part of Sheikh Khalifa’s humanitarian initiatives advocating the values of forgiveness and tolerance. Every year prisoners are given a second chance to live and reintegrate into mainstream society, and an opportunity to start a new chapter of their life among their friends and families. There’s no better time to do so than the holy month of Ramadan!
