Dr. Ahmed Al-Abyath: The security approach is not enough to reduce crime... Religious values contribute to the treatment

Dr. and researcher on psychological and social issues, Imam Ahmad Al-Abyath, reported today, Thursday, November 26, 2020, that the level of crime in Tunisia has become interesting especially recently, calling for the development of the religious and moral conscience of the individual to retreat from such behaviors.

Dr. Ahmad Al-Abyath, during a lecture held by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy through Zoom App on "the role of the Imam and the religious establishment in confronting crime in Tunisia," explained that there are several reasons behind the rise of this crime, the most important of which are drugs, the decline of the role of the family and the educational institution, the decline of the rule of law and the retreat of the religious role. 

Through these reports, which are addressed to religious actors as part of the "Hand in Hand to combat Corruption and Extremism" project, he said that the security approach alone cannot deal with crime in the country, but rather religious lessons offered in the mosques will remind people of values and morals, and develop their inner distributed to love good and avoid evil.

Consequently, the doctor revealed that highlighting these values and positive aspects of a person creates a kind of social discipline that makes him fear the criticisms of society and those around him if he commits a crime.
