Po­lit­i­cal speech

The In­te­rior Min­istry in­formed of­fi­cers to ab­stain from po­lit­i­cal, re­li­gious or tribal speech while in duty, and any­one who vi­o­lates those or­ders will be sub­jected to le­gal ac­tion, ac­cord­ing to a cir­cu­lar given re­cently to as­sis­tant un­der­sec­re­taries. —Al-Rai

While the cen­ters ex­plained that the pro­grams tar­get “pro­tect­ing young peo­ple from ex­trem­ist thought” and teach them mod­er­ate Is­lamic val­ues, the min­istry re­sponded by say­ing that non­govern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions are not au­tho­rized to en­ter and give any kinds of ac­tiv­i­ties in­side schools, sources said. — Al-Rai
