the official also commended the wise leadership for giving directives to promote communication between the federal departments and the society.

“based on a strategy the general authority of islamic affairs and endowments is working on besieging extremist religious rhetoric which abuses islam and offends nations as well as on immunising the society and generations against its dangers and goals which have been exposed in arab and muslim countries.

“extremist ideology has receded thanks to the wise leadership’s authentic approach to islam’s moderation tolerance openness” said al kaabi. — wam
