Minister of Religious Affairs Noureddine Khadmi

Minister of Religious Affairs Noureddine Khadmi and Minister of Justice Noureddine Bhiri signed this morning an agreement to cooperate in the provision of religious education to inmates in Tunisian prisons and juvenile detention facilities.

This agreement, which was penned at the Ministry of Justice, aims to help rehabilitate both prisoners and juvenile delinquents so that they can be contributing members of society once they are released.

The Ministry of Religious Affairs will organize periodic awareness courses in Islamic principles, jurisprudence, and shariaa sciences.

“Religious preachers and very qualified, specialized imams will take charge of giving lessons in religious matters and making competitions in Quran recitations in prisons and juvenile detention centers,” read a press statement from the Ministry of Religious Affairs.

    So religion makes a better person does it….look at all the murder and mayhem around the world in the name of religious fervor…..good luck with that….what is wrong with these people to have such an arrogance to think that what they believe cures all.
