As Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is trying to steer the Kingdom towards what he calls ‘Moderate Islam,’ Saudi Arabian government has taken a number of drastic measures to complete this objective.
Owing to the same the education minister announced that the Kingdom is seeking to purge its school curriculum of any influence of the Muslim Brotherhood and dismiss employees who
Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Issa said in a statement that the government will “fight extremist ideologies by reviewing school curricula and books to ensure they are free of the banned Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda”.
The education ministry will also “ban books attributed to the Muslim Brotherhood from all schools and universities and remove all those who sympathize with the group”, he added.
Now that the crown prince seeks to remove any influence of extremist ideologies infiltirating the school books, significant steps are being taken for the same.
Following persecution by the then Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser in the 1960s, many members of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood – who advocate toppling rulers deemed unjust – sought refuge in Saudi Arabia.

Human Rights Watch said last September that the kingdom’s religious studies curriculum provokes intolerance, with “hateful and incendiary language” towards religious minorities.
According to the HRW, a comprehensive review of school books produced by the education ministry found violent and intolerant teachings, despite official promises to eliminate them.
