Director of Moderation Consolidation Center Abdullah Al-Shuraekah affirmed that the number of Kuwaitis who visited DAESH website in the year 2016 dwindled to only 40. This is a monumental difference compared to 4,000 Kuwaitis who used to visit the website in a month in 2014.

Al-Shuraekah assured that the center will continue its efforts in facing challenges of extremist and wayward ideologies as a way of strengthening the culture of religious moderation in the society. He explained that the center is doing its best to monitor social media by taking note of the accounts that support terrorism in Kuwait.

It formed a committee to follow up posts on social media, and will submit to the Undersecretary of Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs a report concerning the contents of websites and accounts that are sympathetic to terrorism or working on spreading its ideologies.

Al-Shuraekah attributed the sharp decline in the number of Kuwaitis who are sympathetic to DAESH to the hostility of Kuwaiti society towards strange and wayward ideologies. He affirmed that Kuwaitis are highly aware of the situation due to the awareness campaigns organized by Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, Moderation Center, and other relevant authorities.

Ministry of Interior has taken necessary measures involving all sectors of the ministry for implementing security plans for the forthcoming month of Ramadan. The first revolves around general security to follow up the security situation of the country.

The second one is concerned with provision of special protection for mosques, Hussainiyats and churches during religious events. The third is related to sudden security measures that will be taken based on intelligence efforts and directives.

According to security sources, all sectors of the ministry will be linked through a joint control room to implement the security plans which will involve a number of other government sectors such as Kuwait Fire Service Directorate, Medical Emergency Department, Ministry of Electricity and Water and other related bodies.

The security plans prepared by the ministry are based on a number of factors, topped by the establishment of a central control room under the leadership of the Undersecretary of Ministry of Interior, as well as control rooms in each governorate with the inclusion of a member of each sector to follow up the security situation and ensure submission of periodic reports.

The sources affirmed that the plans are also based on a full security deployment “visible and invisible” with the help of surveillance cameras and includes securitymen patrolling markets, malls, and places frequented by the public during the month of Ramadan.

They revealed that securitymen will be deployed to places of worship during religious occasions such as Friday prayers and night prayers to provide necessary security and to immediately deal with suspicious cases. Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor has rejected the request of a former MP to collect donations for constructing a mosque to be named after him.

Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs had previously specified a plot of land for this former MP for the construction of a mosque at his own expense. He had met all the necessary terms and conditions including payment of financial guarantee worth two-thirds of the total cost for construction of the mosque.

According to a source from Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, the former MP presented a request to Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor on behalf of his charity organization for approval to collect donations for constructing the mosque, after the plot of land was allocated to him. However, such an action is in violation of the relevant laws.
