RIYADH — Imam Muhammad Bin Saud Islamic University in Riyadh has warned its students and staff against devious ideas being propagated by five extremist preachers and seven terrorist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood.

The university has erected large banners and billboards carrying the names and pictures of the five preachers in different parts of the campus.

The five preachers include Youssaf Al-Qaradawi, Hakim Al-Mutairi, Hajjaj Al-Ajami, Hamid Al-Ali and Abdullah Al-Mohaisni.

The university warned the students against the extremist preachers at the start of the Intellectual Security Week, which will be launched at its Scientific Institute on Sunday.

The terrorist organizations against which the university issued warnings are Al-Qaeda, Daesh, Jabhat Al-Nusra, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hizbullah, the Houthi movement and the Muslim Scholars' Union.

The university's Rector Sulaiman Aba Al-Khail has ordered billboards carrying the names of the preachers and groups that have been classified as terrorist by the government be erected in the colleges and departments of the university so that the staff and students should recognize them.

Khaled Al-Roumi, director of the institute, said the intellectual security week would be organized to immunize the youth against the dangers of the terrorist preachers and organizations.
