Shaikh Mohammad posts education question in Facebook status update

Dubai Should the new academic year start during Ramadan or after the Eid holiday?

This was the question posted via status update on the newly opened Facebook page of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

As a user-generated content site, Facebook users are able to comment on his status updates and make virtual friends with him on his unrestricted profile, which allows the general public to view his photo albums, videos, personal information and "poke" Shaikh Mohammad (to get his virtual attention).

"I was brought up in a family that believed in the importance of visionary public service and philanthropy and I have tried to live these values in my everyday life," Shaikh Mohammad posted in his "About Me" section.
