Saudi Scouts to attend celebrations

19 July 2007

JEDDAH — A 150-strong delegation of Saudi Boy Scouts Association (SBSA) is to participate in the centenary celebrations of the scouting movement, which is to be held in London from July 27 to August 8, according to Dr. Abdullah Alfahad, secretary-general of SBSA.

Laek Ali M. Aydrose, chief commissioner of Bharat Scouts & Guides, who was present during the announcement, added they have invited Dr. Alfahad to visit India.

“The idea is to let him explore the country's physical and cultural landscape," he said, and that in the Kingdom, too, there is close cooperation between the organisations of the two countries. "We are planning to bring the boy scouts from Saudi and Indian schools on a common platform," he added.

In another development, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz is sponsoring a project called “King Abdullah's Gift for Peace," to promote international understanding and brotherhood among nations. The King's initiative is in response to an international congress on scouts to be held in Geneva, in November 2008.

Dr. Alfahad said that King Abdullah's Gift for Peace Centre has been set up as part of the project. The Kingdom will bear the expenses for the project intended to promote peace and brotherhood.

"The duty of a member of this chamber is not to pander to what is popular
but to uphold what is right..." -RR
