Detroit area group tackles rise of radical Islam
by George Hunter
An Islamic youth organization wants to educate the public about why some young Muslims turn to extremism, and how terrorists' ideology represents a twisted view of the religion.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association of Metro Detroit on Wednesday hammered home the points during a seminar titled "Stop the CrISIS" at the Rochester Hills Library. About 50 people attended.
The seminar was "geared toward understanding the topics of youth radicalization and Islam," said Mahir Osman, vice president of the group, which is one of more than 70 AMYA chapters nationwide.
