Scholars’ efforts to combat extremist ideas lauded

  • The scholars denounced the Houthis

MAKKAH: The coordination committee of the Program of Communication with Yemeni Scholars met in Makkah on Thursday with the program’s supervisor Sheikh Abdullah Al-Mutairi, in the presence of Advisor to the Yemeni President Sheikh Mohammed Al-Ameri.

Al-Mutairi hailed the efforts of scholars and preachers to combat the extremist ideas propagated by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen, and stressed that the intellectual battle is no less important than the military one.

Al-Ameri, too, praised the program and expressed his thanks to the Saudi government for its support of scholars and preachers, and its support for the Yemeni people and the country’s legitimate government.

The scholars denounced the Houthis, saying that the militia’s crimes affect the faith and culture of the Yemeni people and threaten their future as well as their present.
