Saudi senior clerics warn of religious associations based on partisanship

Published: Updated:

The Saudi Council of Senior Muslim Scholars warned of unions that categorize themselves as scholars’ organizations as in fact they are based on partisan ideas and have been established for political reasons.

The council said in a statement that these unions, particularly the International Union of Muslim Scholars, are based on narrow partisan ideas, adding that the International Union of Muslim Scholars puts its interest before the interest of Islam and Muslims and has played a role in inciting strife in some Muslim and Arab countries.

The Saudi council called on everyone to keep away from these unions and advised Saudis not to join any union or association that’s not certified by the state.
