Qatar- HH Sheikha Moza: Humanity Needs Comprehensive Global Nat.Policies & Programs for Family Issues/1/

(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) aborating HH Sheikha Moza said " In this regard I would like to talk about the issues of the Arab family in an era that Arab societies are undergoing a sensitive historic period whereby its identity culture and future are threatened. Based on the belief that the family is the nucleus and unity of society it is also the educational womb of generations: if it is good society will be righteous and if it is disintegrated society will be incoherent. We as Arabs and Muslims have a religious cultural and social heritage that sanctifies the relationship between parents and children and honors the values that maintain cohesion solidarity and compassion among family members" HH the QF board chairperson added. Throughout the course of time the Arab family has called for many referential values to establish the cohesion and strengthen the inheritance of education between generations. Up until recently authorities continued to regulate the lives of different Arab societies and the behavior of individuals including the moral authority of religion the family authority the value judgment authority and the legislative authority with its judicial context. However the cultural invasion that has swept the world through the flood of globalization in the last two decades has actually shaken the Arab man created a disruption in the system of values diminished the identity and cultural characteristics leading to the decline of values and led to slackness in terms of anticipating and addressing the challenges. Here we do not call to a regressive identity; rather we wish to be open with the world to establish interculturalism with others not through their identity but through our own HH sheikha Moza noted. HH went on to say" Cultural invasion has targeted the core of the identity of the Arab family: its culture language and religion. The media and entertainment culture has played the most influential role in carrying the terms and consequences of this invasion which has affected many of the Arab youth. We hurt deeply as we see young Arabs losing their identity cases that blow the siren lest this domination permeate future generations. Meanwhile Arab countries are preoccupied by political disputes or internal conflicts ignoring their duties toward building and developing society. Perhaps no other region in the world is quite like most Arab countries whose budgets are drained through armaments security requirements and media propaganda. How can the family be decent when the state is not? HH Sheikha Moza added. (MORE)
