For years people have been asking questions about the link between youth radicalization and Islam. The tragedies of Garland, Chattanooga, San Bernardino, and Paris have made the general public and even politicians more skeptical of the peaceful nature of Islam. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association of Metro Detroit wishes to educate the public and their own membership on the differences between ISIS and Islam as well as offer solutions to the growing issue of youth radicalization in a seminar titled “Stop The CrISIS”. The program, which was also conducted a year prior with positive reception, will be open to the public and will include presentations, speeches, and a Q/A session. The event will provide a riveting, eye-opening look at guarding against youth radicalization.
