(London) Rehman Chishti MP held talks with Prince Turki Al-Faisal of Saudi Arabia. Mr Chishti and Prince Turki discussed strengthening UK-Saudi relations and how best the international community can tackle the threat of international extremism and terrorism.
Mr Chishti strongly supported Prince Turki’s conviction that terrorist organisations should be labelled “extremists” and “terrorists” rather than “Islamists,” as this grants these groups the religious approval they seek.
Mr Chishti fully endorses Prince Turki’s argument that ISIS should be given the alternative name of Fahesh, which derives from an Arabic root meaning, “obscene”.
Mr Chishti and Prince Turki discussed the need for the international community to work together with all neighbouring Arab states to tackle this evil organisation Fahesh operating in Syria and Iraq. The meeting also touched on wider issues concerning the Middle East.
Member of Parliament for Gillingham and Rainham, Rehman Chishti MP said:
“It was a pleasure to meet with Prince Turki whom I admire and respect. His great knowledge and wisdom on tackling many of the key challenges and issues we face in the world today, should be taken into account when forming international policy.”
