Saudi Arabia Bans Muslim Brotherhood From Schools
Saudi Arabia banned Muslim Brotherhood teachings and any other influence of the Islamist organization from its schools’ curriculum. The move includes firing teachers who are sympathetic to the Brotherhood’s program for political revolution.
The announcement was made by Saudi Education Minister Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Issa, who vowed the government will “fight extremist ideologies by reviewing school curricula and books to ensure they are free of the banned Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda.”
Al-Issa also said the government would “ban books attributed to the Muslim Brotherhood from all schools and universities and remove all those who sympathize with the group.”
