“There are about 6,000 websites engaged in spreading extremism across the world.
“The origin of these sites that have direct link with terrorism is the West,” said Dr Abdul Rahman Al Hadlaq, director general of the Intellectual Security Department at the Ministry of Interior.
Presenting a working paper at a seminar on Da’wa sites here on Friday, Dr Al Hadlaq said that there is a dubious attempt to target religion while introducing the concepts of terrorism through the Internet.
“The Western experts label some religious sites as sites engaged in promoting violence and extremism,” he said. Dr Al Hadlaq noted that the Ministry of Interior has worked out two separate strategies to confront terror and extremism.
