April 11 2018 12:26 AM


Qatar after the siege isn’t the same country as before, as the State is now positively different and the Qatari community has been and remains an example of civilised society, HE the Minister of Culture and Sports Salah bin Ghanem bin Nasser al-Ali has stressed.
The minister’s remarks came on the sidelines of the inauguration of a book titled Tamim Al Majd by Mental Health Friends Association (Weyak). The event was part of an initiative launched by Weyak on November 8, and which continues until next May, in the presence of HE Chairman of Weyak Sheikh Thani bin Abdullah al-Thani and Weyak Vice-Chairman Hassan bin Abdullah al-Ghanim.
The minister underlined that Qatar has the human resources that rank it among the developed countries in the world - its youth, citizens and residents who are exemplary in coexistence and civilised life.
The minister said that the book Tamim Al Majd is an important element in enhancing the awareness of the community.
Recently, Qatari Authors’ Forum was inaugurated, which saw the launching of many books and the holding of several seminars, the minister added.
Minister al-Ali noted that the book Tamim Al Majd derives its importance from its association with the speech of His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, which was delivered on July 21, 2017, after the unjust siege imposed on Qatar by the Saudi-led quartet on June 5, 2017, and it was inspiring in every sense of the word.
He expressed hope that the book reaches all segments of society.
Minister al-Ali added that culture is an important tool to stimulate positive behaviour, and the speech of the Emir was filled with this spirit, and the book was the result of positive interaction with this historic speech.
Tamim Al Majd, which is written by researcher Amer Kamel, one of Weyak volunteers, is based on Emir’s speech of 21 July 2017, with enhanced feedback to mental health inspired by the speech by psychological counselling specialist Dr Al Araby Qwaidry.
The book, which begins with the text of the speech, consists of 22 chapters.
