KUWAIT: Interior Ministry Undersecretary Lieutenant General Suleiman Al-Fahd said the Awqaf Ministry plays a vital role in instilling the values and principles of national unity through guidance in mosques.

A statement by the security information department said Fahd held a joint coordination meeting with the Awqaf ministry’s undersecretary in the presence of assistant undersecretaries of both ministries in order to discuss security measures for places of worship and highlight civic values in the society.

Fahd said the meeting comes on the heels of security developments and heinous criminal acts against some worship places in Saudi Arabia. He said religion should not be used as a cover and an illegal approach to commit crimes in this holy period of the year. He said all security facilities are at the service of the awqaf ministry to provide a secure atmosphere and deal decisively with all those who compromise the security of places of worship or do not respect the sacredness of the holy month.
