The Senior Advisor briefed Dr. Bergström on the efforts exerted by the General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities World to encounter extremism and the waves of Islamophobia in the west. “We communicate with the Imams of Muslim communities in the west and provide them with the necessary training in light of moderate sound Shari’ah methodologies to encounter extremist ideologies and Islamophobia,” Dr. Negm said.
From his part, Dr. Bergström praised the efforts of Egypt’s Dar al-Ifta and confirmed that combating terrorism has become a necessity that requires an international cooperation among the world’s nations.
