Connect The Dots! ... AL, ... Lah, ... Lah, ... Lah, ... Lah, ... Lah!

Connect The Dots! ... AL, ... Lah, ... Lah, ... Lah, ... Lah, ... Lah!

 

Ha! .... Muslim communities are called upon to be brave and put forth concrete and proactive plans to protect their youth from falling in the trap of fanaticism. Imams and leaders in the Muslim communities can no longer afford to be under the mercy of extremist elements and simply denounce violent acts after they take place.
Rather, they have a civic and a religious duty to protect and shield Muslim youth and the society from such elements. The rest of the general public has an equal responsibility of positive engagement with their fellow Muslims in the community.
It is alienation and rejection of the other that makes youth an easy prey for extremist agendas. Positive social and community engagement will help create safer communities, eliminate myths, and defeat bigotry.
Let us not forget that terrorism has no faith and that fanatic elements in any religion or culture are by definition extreme elements that represent nothing but their twisted world views.
