KUWAIT CITY, Sept 28: The gov­ern­ment will soon adopt a project for en­sur­ing pro­tec­tion of youths from ter­ror­ism and ex­trem­ism, with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Min­istry of In­te­rior, Min­istry of Awqaf and Is­lamic Af­fairs, Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, Min­istry of In­for­ma­tion, Pub­lic Author­ity for Youth and Sports Af­fairs and other con­cerned au­thor­i­ties, re­ports Al-Qabas daily quot­ing in­formed sources.

They said this new project will soon be launched with the aim of spread­ing the cul­ture of mod­er­a­tion among em­ploy­ees in min­istries, uni­ver­si­ties and schools, im­prov­ing re­li­gious speeches and ser­mons, elim­i­nat­ing any­thing that can in­cite strife and vi­o­lence, and cor­rect­ing mis­con­cep­tions and sus­pi­cions.

The sources ex­plained that the gov­ern­ment con­sid­ers sec­tar­i­an­ism, vi­o­lence and ex­trem­ism as a dis­ease that has spread through­out the coun­try. The man­i­fes­ta­tions of vi­o­lence ap­peared in the univer­sity elec­tions, which warn of dis­turb­ing and dan­ger­ous be­hav­ior in the fu­ture if not curbed. Be­sides, there are some ex­trem­ist move­ments which are con­sid­ered as a danger to the youths due to the emer­gence of sheikhs and ad­vo­cates who are pro­mot­ing ex­trem­ism and ideas that should be con­fronted and ad­dressed by gov­ern­ment agen­cies to pre­vent their reach to the youths and spread in the so­ci­ety.

They af­firmed that the project aims at es­tab­lish­ing a cen­ter in each gover­norate to con­front all neg­a­tive phe­nom­ena, vi­o­lence and ex­trem­ism as well as re­ceive com­plaints and pre­vent the out­break of ex­trem­ism.
