After the rise to power of MBS, the response of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to exclusivism, extremism and terrorism has changed. The new approach is to promote moderation, toleration and coexistence both within and outside government. As Crown Prince and as the Prime Minister, MBS has taken a tough stand and far reaching decision that will create a safer and a secure world. He has imprisoned 6000 including 2000 radical clerics. He has communicated unambiguously that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will fights religious hatred and build a harmonious society. The reforms in Saudi Arabia will continue to influence and shape global Islam and contribute to security and stability worldwide in the coming years. The paper will delineate these measures and counter measures in the Kingdom and its domestic, regional and global impact.
