Campaign Against Religious Extremism
His Holiness AlGohar began a campaign to de-radicalise the British Muslim Youth by educating them with the Sufi interpretation of Islam, aptly named ‘Young Sufis of Great Britain.’
He has delivered a multitude of lectures in both English and Urdu on the subject of Wahhabism, Salafism and other hate-mongering elements in Islam, offering practical solutions to curb terrorism. His approach includes promotion of spiritual knowledge to arm adherents of religions with the academic ammunition required to combat hateful ideologies.
His efforts have been commended for his efforts by authorities, media and think tanks. For example, the Croydon London Borough Council recognised his extraordinary work with the ‘Mighty Men of Valour’ award in 2007. Dr Sun Myung Moon of the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace also declared him an ‘Ambassador for Peace.’
