Muslim for Change (Reformed Muslims)
Clarion’s own Raheel Raza believes it’s crucial to criticize white supremacists like the KKK but as a society, Americans and others must also condemn Islamist supremacists. To some extent, radicalization would be lessened, if, Muslims were better integrated into the West (U.S.), but I would define ‘integration’ not only as physical, but mental and emotional integration as well. What happened usually with immigrants, is that, they may physical integrate, i.e., they dresses, speak, and move around as Westerners, but their ideology and thought process is still back home. This was actually pointed out to me, during an interview with African immigrants to the U.S., when one of the leaders said, “Their bodies are here, but their minds are still in Africa.” Western policies have not looked at this aspect, nor have they implemented programs that walked on, ideological integration.
