    Reminds me of when you said we shouldn't just label everyone who gets arrested at the syrian border as ISIS/Terrorists.

    "Aslaaamualaikum,

    F.A.O Muslims in Rochdale - Family released without charge

    The BBC revealed today that the family who were arrested for purportedly travelling to Syria via the Turkish border have been released without charge.

    It must be noted that upon their arrest, there were some people in our community who irresponsibly helped brew a narrative that "ISIS are spreading their tentacles". Others attempted to use the story to create a schism within our community along sectarian lines. Simon Danczuk further exploited the story and arrogantly said "The family are not welcome back to the UK".

    There are four important lessons that we can learn as a Muslim community from this event;

    1) Muslims like all others should be afforded the right to a fair trial and not be assumed to be guilty before even having a chance to speak. Muslims must reject this trial by media while the facts of the case are unknown. The media have a clear obligation to report facts, not make up stories based on their own prejudices.

    2) Politicians like Simon Danczuk crave political opportunism. He implied that the family were guilty of a crime without any evidence. Such politicians should be rejected and are indicative of a political system that doesn't look after the interests of Muslims.

    3) Community leaders who claim to represent Islam and the Muslims have a duty to speak the truth and not simply bow down to the dominant media narrative. Statements like "ISIS are spreading their tentacles", "The Saudi ideology has the backing of petrodollars" are divisive for our community. We cannot accept those who claim to be Muslim community leaders helping perpetuate an Islamophobic narrative. Muslims have a duty to scrutinise and account those who claim to represent the Muslim Community.

    4) There exists an ideological agenda to intervene in the Muslim Community and reform Islam. This can be seen from the immediate juxtaposition of this story to a "non-violent extremist" narrative. A claim that normative Islamic ideas such as the desire of Muslims to live under a Khilafah in the Muslim World would lead to joining violent militias like ISIS even though Muslims have rejected ISIS over and over again. We must reaffirm normative Islamic ideas and prevent Islam from being associated with violence and criminality thereby criminalising the whole community.

    Please share far and wide and support the family whose lives have been traumatised due to irresponsible comments in the media made by politicians and some Muslims."

    Assalamu Alaikum!

    I know I've been away for so long but I really like that this soc is still going strong.

    How has the move away from the Debates section been like so far? Did it make a difference?

    Anyway, has anyone seen this? It's amazing!

    Wa 'alaikum assalam. Yes, I have noticed that your TSR usage has declined rapidly over the last few weeks. I guess your new found job must be keeping you very busy, anka.

    Contrary to what you say, I don't think this soc has been very active lately, but that's understandable as people are revising for their exams and whatnot.

    I personally don't like how they moved these society threads to this new found section called "faith and spirituality". Yes, with the ISOC thread being a place where there should be no debate, it was a little out of place being in the debate section, and therefore had to be moved. This move, I believe, has made our thread quieter and has helped to get rid of the haters. Other than that, nothing much has changed to be honest.

    Ah thanks for the update. I saw new posts so that's active enough for me lol. Maybe after exams, the I-Soc will be a lot more active like it used to be.

    True, I have somewhat mixed feelings about the move too.

    EDIT:
    Also I notice that not every Religion soc thread was moved here.

    Waalaikumassalam. Nice to see you back.

    I've mixed feelings about it too. I don't like how the mods have given into the complaints of the haters that this thread didn't belong in the religion section. But I guess if that mean there aren't many haters trolling this thread then it's a good thing I guess.
