Al Najjar: Increase in Violence is Against Civilization
Taqiyah Al Najjar, member of the Bahrain Women’s Association
for Human Development , said that violence takes different forms:
individual or collective, and can be action or reaction. The worst
form of violence is the one that uses ideological justifications
to degrade others. Her comments came during the Arab Thought Forum,
held in Alexandria on 13-15 December 2010.
Al Najjar believes that the level of violence in any society
is an indicator of how civilised the society is, and its ability
to absorb the differences in opinions and beliefs without causing
civil strife. She added that diversity and coexistence are always
a source of enrichment to any nation.
