Muslim youths, the future hope of the community should embrace positivity in place of anger, disillusionment and negative thinking

Radicalisation among a section of Indian Muslim youths, a concern for the society as a whole and the Muslim community in particular, cannot be attributed to the Quran and Sunnah. Rather, the source of such radicalisation is a product of the Muslim media and now the use of internet and Social Media, which carry vast contents with fake images and narratives, showing that the Muslims are an imperiled community. Both the Muslim Print Media and the internet are creating a mindset, as a result of which Muslim youths have become receptive to negativity and sometimes even treat positive news with suspicion.

To save young Muslims from all sort of negative thinking, Muslim reformers should launch an extensive campaign and awaken Muslim minds in such a way that they may analyse information on websites on their own and develop the ability to differentiate between truth and falsehood. The new generations of Muslims, especially those who are availing modern education are the future hope of the community. They should be impressed upon that Islam, in itself, is a great blessing from the God for the whole mankind. But indulgence in radicalisation and militancy by some Muslim youths, which are not based on any reason or teaching by Islam, has brought bad name to the community. They should be made to understand through Friday Khutba, delivered by the Maulvis, that non- Muslims never regard Islam as a danger to them and Islamophobia has no place in India. The misguided youths should abandon the wrong interpretation of Islam and shun the gun and bomb culture, so that people may be saved from developing misunderstanding about Islam and the Muslims.
