Riyadh – The Ideological War Center (IWC), a subsidiary of the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Defense, launched an international project to fight extremism and terrorism, the ministry announced via its social media accounts in Arabic, English and French.

Chaired by Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, second deputy premier and minister of defense, IWC will focus on exposing mistakes, allegations, suspicions and deceptive techniques promoted by extremists and terrorists. In addition, the IWC plans to raise the level of awareness in Muslim and non-Muslim countries on the real Islam.

By discussing in-depth the true ideological underpinnings of Islam, the IWC wants to establish correct concepts, which terrorism acted to distort with incorrect interpretation and atrocious crimes, by explaining Islam’s noble values and elevated guidance.

The IWC also aims to introduce intellectual initiatives to several sides in Saudi Arabia and abroad, including the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition.

It also wishes to use studies and research by creating scientific and intellectual platforms, international forums and research chairs to engage communities in promoting the moderate view of Islam.

The center is planning to organize conferences, seminars and discussion panels, particularly in collaboration with influential powers to positively expand, penetrate and launch public campaigns to engage communities in promoting this moderate view.
