Merchant dedicated the award and medal to his countrymen in the UAE and other countries, “I am sincerely thankful to the UAE government for acknowledging my efforts. Whatever I have done, and will continue to do, is for the love of the UAE and India. I represent my country India; and the UAE is my second home. I will do whatever I can for this beautiful country and its people.”
