GCC states need to scale up combat against extremism - Min. Al-Jabri Kuwait News Agency - 20 April, 2017
Kuwait's Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and Minister of State for Municipal Affairs Mohammad Al-Jabri said the greatest threat facing the Gulf communities is the extremist ideology.
"The GCC peoples are in dire need of guidance and enlightened thought and this is what the ministries of awqaf (religious endowments) do," the minister told KUNA on Wednesday evening.
Al-Jabri made the comments following the fourth meeting of the GCC ministers of awqaf and Islamic affairs.
The meeting focused on how to join forces against the threats of extremism and terrorism through correct religious discourse and sermons at mosques, he pointed out.
Al-Jabri noted that the delegation of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs to the ministerial meeting suggested launching a regional mechanism for promotion of tolerance and moderation as a means of combatting extremism.
He highlighted the need to make concerted efforts to guide youth in the Gulf region and immunize them against extremism ideology.
