Telangana and Andhra Pradesh state minorities commission is all set to release an awareness campaign against ISIS by getting on board Imams of a large number of mosques across the two states to thwart the attempts of the terror group to lure youths. The Commission will hold a seminar, awareness programme and interactive session on “ISIS – Interpreting reality”, which would be attended among others by Imams of nearly 300 mosques from the two states.
These Imams are going to listen to all this (speeches by security and legal experts and religious scholars on perils of ISIS) and they will say the same thing next Friday (Friday prayers) in mosques. So, that way they will spread the word throughout the states. At the event, they would discuss ways to wean away people from the violent and ultra-conservative ideology of the terror group, and educate youth about serious repercussions of getting involved in its activities through social media.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the states which are going to launch an awareness campaign against ISIS?
