Dr Abdulaziz Al-Ghamdi, the president of the university, said the training course comes in line with the Arab strategy for fighting terrorism. He quoted the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, who said that the crime of terrorism originates from people who have sick and deviant minds.

The training course will cover several topics, including terror cells, the role of religion in fighting terrorism, the contradiction of terrorism with Islamic law and the Saudi experience in dealing with extremism.
