Kuwait is launching a new strategy to combat extremism in the country's prisons and educational institutions, Kuwait's Al-Qabas reported Friday (August 10th).
The new strategy includes prisoner rehabilitation and re-integration into society, and promotes moderate curricula in schools and mosques, said Abdullah al-Barak, assistant undersecretary for the Islamic studies sector of the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs.
He said officials want to provide prisoners with spiritual and religious education before they are released into society.
"Moderation in preaching is present in all curricula taught in the sector's departments," he said, adding that instilling moderation in society is the best way to combat extremism.
