Eradication of extremist elements

This refers to the recent statement of Saudi Arab’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in which he said that he wanted to spread moderate Islam in the Kingdom. He further said that he would eradicate extremism and the extremist elements.
The term moderate Islam is considered opposite to radical Islam that is attached with the Muslims of radical groups around the world. Unfortunately, this segregation in Islam and among Muslim gained hype in the international media after 9/11.
Leadership of Muslim countries should promote tolerant and rational image of Islam that is the need of the hour. Instead of indulging into sectarian violence, they should strive to strengthen their countries technologically and economically. The sectarian skirmishes around the Muslim world have already gulped down life of a number of poor Muslims. His statement should be appreciated and it is hoped that he would walk the talk.
