PREACHERS OF HATE:
A SPECIAL INVESTIGATION
As part of a new series tackling hate speech around the world, Arab News has embarked on a journey to track and document extremist ideology, to hold clerics accountable for what they say, and to analyze how their words affect people worldwide.
Each week we focus on a particular preacher, explain their beliefs, shed light on their edicts and hold them to account.
AN maintains a firm position that there is zero tolerance for intolerance and is committed to reporting on the long-lasting effects and consequences that hate speech and ideologies have.
Assets created for the project included:
A new landing page on the Arab News website.
Word cloud animations showcasing words used by the preachers.
Special pages in the newspaper.
MPUs and social teasers.
Videos, books and audio published by the preachers themselves.
