BBC Muslim presenter calls for British Muslims to condemn ISIS terror
Mishal Husain, the co-host of BBC program Today, has urged Britain's Muslim clerics to hop on the social media bandwagon in publically condemning the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), several news reports quoted Husain as saying during an interview with Radio Times this week.
Husain, 41, said Muslim community leaders should publically support the anti-ISIS social media campaign Not In My Name which was set up by the East London-based group Active Change Foundation after the murder of David Haines and the kidnapping of Alan Henning. The campaign – praised by U.S. President Barack Obama during a speech to the U.N. General Assembly – aimed to counter the presence of ISIS' extremist ideology on social media.
"I think the 'Not In My Name' campaign is a very positive development because outrage is shared by all right-thinking people," Husain said.
