Social media help sought in curbing deviant ideology

Social Media

Academics and journalists have called for uniting efforts of the Education Ministry, universities, the Council of Senior Scholars and the Islamic Affairs Ministry to adopt a national project that protects the young people in the Kingdom from deviant thoughts.

Educational supervisor Saad Buraik Al-Qarni stressed the importance of creating social media programs with the help of senior scholars that will reach all young men quickly through short text messages.

Young people should be directed to protect security in the Kingdom by adopting national projects that promote unity and prevent division.

Al-Qarni stressed the importance of using all national programs that prevent the spread of bad thoughts that have been reaching the Kingdom for years.

Turki Al-Asiri said the old way of preaching that include lectures will not work with this generation because they get their information from social media like Twitter and Facebook. He said we should adopt new methods of educating young men, and the Council of Senior Scholars, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Islamic Affairs and Prince Naif University should have a role in this work according to a unified vision and scheme.

Al-Asiri stressed the importance of an academic framework for young people’s thoughts, and moderate thought based on Shariah.

Researcher in social affairs Ahmad Al-Zahrani said despite the presence of calling offices and social committees in schools, universities and educational establishments, as well as the million- dollar budgets spent on these activities, there is still no moderate national project that is based in sound Islamic thought.

Al-Zahrani said up until this moment the new media hasn’t been used to publish a general vision to enhance security of the country.

He added that the Ministry of Interior protects the nation but where is the role of mosques, schools, universities and social and educational establishments?
