Saudi Arabia is said to be considering plans aimed at warning schoolchildren against ‘Westernisation’ and atheism.
The kingdom’s education ministry is thought to be preparing a project called ‘Immunity’ which is described as ‘inoculating’ children from ideas that could threaten their ‘ideological security’.
Among the list of threats the ministry lists to children are westernisation, atheism, liberalism and secularism.
And according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, the only threats that come after this are extremism from the likes of ISIS and al-Qaeda.
However, news of the new plans for schools provoked an angry reaction from some Saudi citizens on social media.
