JEDDAH: The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), represented by the Sawt Al-Hikma (Voice of Wisdom) Center for Dialogue, Peace and Understanding, will hold a seminar on Thursday in which Saudi Arabia will review its experience in combating terrorism and violent extremism.
OIC Secretary-General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen said Saudi Arabia, under the leadership of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has successful experience against those who issue misleading religious edicts and propagate misguided ideas.
The Kingdom has adopted an integrated approach and established specialized centers in this regard, namely the Intellectual Warfare Center, the Global Center for Combating Extremism, and the Prince Khaled Al-Faisal Center for Moderation, Al-Othaimeen added.
Sawt Al-Hikma is carrying out a series of initiatives within a project through which the OIC will highlight members states’ efforts against violent extremism and terrorism committed in the name of Islam, he said. Sawt Al-Hikma is working to unify those efforts, he added.
At the seminar, Saudi Arabia will review its efforts to combat the roots of extremism and terrorism through the Intellectual Warfare Center and the Prince Khaled Al-Faisal Center for Moderation.
The seminar, which will be attended by specialists and delegates from OIC member states, will enable them to learn from the Kingdom’s experience, Al-Othaimeen said.
