Grand Mufti urges moderation and right thinking

The Kingdom’s Grand Mufti Shaikh Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al-AsShaikh, who also chairs the Senior Commission of ulema (religious scholars) and heads the administration for religious research, today praised the success of the security forces in foiling subversive actions by the deviant group. The measures taken, he said, reflect long-standing concepts of stability in the public order and security in the country. He urged expatriates as well as citizens to continue to report any suspicious behavior. If a son or other relative has altered his faith or become confused or started to think about becoming disobedient, it is necessary to take him to a religious scholar who can show him the danger of his thinking and point out the right way instead. He called on anyone who is still involved in subversive actions to repent, and surrender to the authorities.
