U.K. Muslim cleric starts counseling program for young men, denouncing extremism and terrorism


A SENIOR Muslim cleric involved in a new youth counselling initiative in Kirklees has denounced extremism and terrorism.

And Mufti Shamsul Huda Khan Misbahi pledged to do all he could to prevent extremism among Muslim youth in the area.

He has started a new counselling initiative at the Kanzul-Iman Mosque in Heckmondwike which is proving increasingly popular with teenagers from the Muslim community who are growing up in British society.


He added: “I have not come across any such cases of Muslim youth under the influence of extremist thinking. However, I will not hesitate to engage with them if I should come across these people.

“I will do anything I can to de-radicalise them. I will speak openly and frankly with them from an Islamic faith education perspective and offer them evidence from our Islamic books which clearly show the Islamic faith denounces all forms of racism, violent extremism and terrorism. There is no place for extremism in Islam.”
