A ray of hope came in for Saudi women when King Abdullah in 2011 declared appointment of women to the royal advisory council, the Shura. Now, this move by the country shows its changing face and the process of transformation.
Apart from meeting Saudi Arabian women entrepreneurs, PM Modi will also visit an all-women IT Centre managed by Tata Consultancy Services in Riyadh. The center is providing education to 1,000 Saudi women and imparting IT and entrepreneurship skills to them. The center also provides employment opportunities to many Saudi women.
Over the years Saudi Arabia has been co-operating with India on security matters, including putting a stop on money laundering, terrorist financing, narco terrorism etc. Reflecting its close cooperation in security matters with India, Riyadh has handed over wanted terrorists such as Fasih Mohammad, Zabiudin Ansari alias Abu Jundal, Abu Sufiyanin and Abdul Aziz alias Gidda to India.
