Muslim Youth: More needs to be done to tackle extremism

Media Coverage

The 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings is certainly a time to reflect. The horrendous actions of a few, who hijacked the name of Islam and wrongly thought would become martyrs, have in fact left a legacy of disgrace and hatred.

Whilst speaking today, Shaykh Rehan Raza stated “We should not fall in the trap of the terrorists who are trying to divide communities and create animosity. Rather we should unite as a nation to deal with this cancerous ideology”.

Earlier today, Hassan Qadri from the Muslim Youth League UK told ITV Calendar that the government has been slow in tackling radicalisation in the UK and urged David Cameron to reach out to the Muslim community to deal with extremism.
