Saudi Arabia calls Tablighi Jamaat a gate to terrorism, warns people against affiliation to the already banned group

Saudi Arabia govt has ordered preachers and mosques to warn people against the Tablighi and Da’wah groups

Ministry of Islamic Affairs Saudi Arabia has directed the preachers of the mosques to dedicate the Friday sermon towards warning the Saudi people against the Tablighi and Da’wah groups. Minister of Islamic Affairs, Dr. Abdullatif Al_Alsheikh has given a direction to the Mosques in Saudi Arabia to reserve the Friday sermon for warning the people against the partisan groups of Tablighi Jamat and Da’wah existing in the country.

Ministry of Islamic Affairs said, “His Excellency the Minister of Islamic Affairs, Dr.#Abdullatif Al_Alsheikh directed the mosques’ preachers and the mosques that held Friday prayer temporary to allocate the next Friday sermon 5/6/1443 H to warn against (the Tablighi and Da’wah group) which is called (Al Ahbab)”

The Islamic Affairs Ministry mentioned the religious partisan groups of Tablighi and Da’wah in the tweet. While Tablighi groups such as the Tablighi Jamaat preach Muslims to return to the pure form of Sunni Islam, Da’wah groups engage in inviting all people including Muslims and non-Muslims and divulging how the worship of Allah (God) is mentioned in the Quran and Islam. 

Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs further stated that the Friday sermon must declare the misguidance given by such Tablighi groups and called them threats to society and one of the gates that lead to terrorism.

It said, “His Excellency also directed that the sermon include the following topics: 1- Declaration of the misguidance, deviation and danger of this group, and that it is one of the gates of terrorism, even if they claim otherwise. 2- Mention their most prominent mistakes.”

Then the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Saudi Arabia went on to declare that affiliation with religious partisan groups of Tablighi and Da’wah is prohibited in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Tablighi Jamat already banned in Saudi Arabia

Several media houses in India have claimed that Saudi Arabia has banned Tablighi Jamat with these instructions, but that is not true, because the group is already banned in the country. Now the Saudi government has warned people against having affiliations with this group.

Notably, the ban on government employees participating in Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activities was imposed by the Indira Gandhi government in 1966. The Congress government's 1966 decision to ban government employees from partaking in activities of the RSS was a move rooted in political expediency rather than genuine concern for the public interest. The ban sought to stifle the influence of a prominent organization that ideologically opposed the Congress party.
