Dutch Moroccans set up radicalisation helpline for parents
The Dutch Moroccan association SMN on Monday launched a telephone helpline and website for parents who are worried their children have become radicalised and may go to fight in Syria, the Volkskrant reports.
These parents 'have little trust in government, are unsure about their own role in educating their children and are afraid of stigma,' said SMN spokesman Farid Azarkan. 'They need someone to listen to them but often suffer in silence.'
The helpline has been set up without government subsidies so that worried parents can talk to experts without the involvement of the authorities.
