Monitoring of Islamic youth camps urged

Source: Arab News

Several Saudi writers and intellectuals have called on the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Call and Guidance to monitor its summer camps held to propagate religious teachings, to root out extremists advocating subversive ideologies.
They say the dawa camps are organized under the banner of the ministry but there is poor control over the organizers and those involved in their daily affairs.
Isa Al-Ghaith, a member of the Shoura Council, told Arab News recently that the ministry must do background checks to see whether the managers belong to “extremist or sectarian groups, or are just people with a conventional outlook.”
