Newly-appointed Awqaf Minister vows moderation to be maintained as policy
Speed up work: Justice Minister
Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Mohammad Al-Jabri has affirmed his keenness on maintaining moderation and “combating extremism and thoughts of annihilation.” Minister Al-Jabri, the sole elected parliament member in the recently formed new cabinet, made the assertion during a ceremony marking his assumption of the senior post.
The newly-assigned minister affirmed his keenness on maintaining “moderation, his resolve to fight radicalism and destructive thoughts; because our religion is a religion of moderation,” indicating that scholars in the country are supportive of this approach. The State of Kuwait has repeatedly affirmed that it advocates Islam as a religion of moderation and peaceful co-existence among diverse communities. Kuwait hosts communities from various nations of diverse faiths, with freedoms to practice their beliefs.
On his call to pray for the people of Aleppo, the minister replied, “this is the least we can offer to our stricken brothers in Aleppo” praying to His Almighty to relieve them of their hardships. The State of Kuwait has urged the Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities towards the tragic conditions in Aleppo and called for an irregular Arab meeting to look into the plight of the war-battered residents of the Syrian city.
Separately, the new Minister of Justice, Minister of State for National Assembly Affairs Dr Faleh Al-Azb yesterday urged personnel at the Palace of Justice to speed up legal and judicial transactions. Minister Azb made the call for speedier performance of the tasks during a tour to various sections of the Palace of Justice and affiliate buildings, in an effort to pin point causes for work obstruction and delay. The minister during the inspection listened to a number of judges, attorneys, prosecutors and staff. —KUNA
