Facing terrorism culturally starts with education

Salwa Bakr: “Unfortunately, so far we have only confronted terrorism with the security forces. It is necessary and required, and we have paid a heavy price in the blood of our sons, the best of our youth. This confrontation is inevitable.For me, the cultural confrontation is the most important, because it begins with education.

“We must remember that these terrorist organizations have dominated education in Egypt, in one way or another, ever since Sadat gave them the green light in the 1970s. They have dominated kindergarten education at University. Education is no longer secular. painted with a retrograde religious hue.

When you force little girls to wear the hijab, and “Stop teaching sports, music, drawing and dancing in school… You are preparing the cultural and ideological ground for a person who could become a terrorist of the Islamic State”

When you allow girls in middle school to be forced to wear the hijab – little girls are forced to wear the hijab – when you stop teaching sports, music, drawing and dancing in school… By doing all these things, you prepare the cultural and ideological ground for a person who could become a Islamic State terrorist.”
