President: We need new research and recommendations to work with young believers
We need new research and recommendations to work with young believers in new conditions, Kyrgyz leader Sooronbay Jeenbekov stressed during the Islam and Orthodoxy Religions of Peace International Conference.
The President said it is possible to observe the mass involvement of young people in religion in all countries of the region.
Religion has a very powerful mobilization potential, so our states are obliged to prevent its use for destructive purposes. Religion should serve to educate a spiritual citizen, a moral society. We need new research and recommendations to work with young believers in new conditions.
We have little research and development in this direction. I hope our conference will play role in addressing this topical issue, the Kyrgyz leader noted.
The Islam and Orthodoxy Religions of Peace International Conference, attended by President Sooronbay Jeenbekov, took place today, Nov. 21 at the Ala Archa state residence in Bishkek.
