A London Muslim group is launching the event Tuesday evening to address youth radicalization, ISIS, Caliphate, de-radicalization and the solution of moving forward.
Spokesperson for the event, Dr. Kashif Ahmed says the event is part of a nation-wide campaign put on by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama called Stop the Crisis, with events in nearly every major Canadian city.
Ahmed says in recent months, the phenomenon of radicalization and extremism among certain elements of society has grown and become cause for concern across the country, which is why they are putting on the forum.
He says the group would like to clarify facts about Islam, and they would like guests to learn the wider scope on radicalization and what their opinion is on the root causes, as well as solutions.
Ahmed says there are at least 1 million Muslims within Canada. He says it’s important to meet your community members in a setting that is safe to discuss religion.
Ahmed encourages everyone to attend the free event from 5 pm to 7 pm and the Wolf Performance Hall at the Central Public Library.
He says there will be a unique and eye-opening production that combines live presenters and video production to explore this issue. Ahmed says there will be refreshments, as well as plenty of time to ask questions.
