Way ahead at mosque in wake of ter­ror at­tacks

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

In the af­ter­math of the ter­ror­ist at­tack in Lon­don last month, the Re­former was in­vited to the Min­haj ul Qu­ran cen­tre in Ruther­glen for an ex­clu­sive look at the work go­ing on to turn young Mus­lims away from ex­trem­ism.

Young peo­ple from their early teens to early 20s at­tend classes at the cen­tre ev­ery Satur­day.

They dis­cuss their re­li­gion so they have a true un­der­stand­ing of the mean­ing of Is­lam in­stead of a warped one put for­ward by ter­ror­ists.

Imam Muham­mad Babar told us: “We are giv­ing our young­sters a true pic­ture of Is­lam so they have the proper knowl­edge to go for­ward.”
