Imams Online Launch Internet Campaign against ISIS Propaganda

March 30, 2015

Hope Not Hate also have this story, Imams To ‘Reclaim Internet’ From Extremists, reporting that their partners in combating religious extremism, Imams Online, have launched a new site to combat terrorist propaganda from groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. It’s an online magazine called Haqiqah, or ‘The Reality’, which aims to provide clear expositions of the pieces of Islamic scripture quoted by the terrorists and extremists to promote their vile views. The magazine quotes Shaukat Warraich, Imams Online’s chief editor, as saying

“We’re turning the tide. Though we still have a way to go, we know that by taking efforts to support and mobilise the huge online Muslim population, we will eventually drown out the violent voices.”

The article also states that it joins the sites #NotInMyName from the Active Change Foundation and Inspire’s #MakingAStand. It concludes by urging everyone to support British Muslims in driving out the pedlars of hate.

The article’s at Go and read it for further information and links to the sites.

See It Report It Site for Reporting On-Line Racism and Extremism

December 17, 2014

The anti-racist and anti-extremist site, Hope Not Hate, along with the Active Change Foundation, Imams Online and Upstanding Neighbourhoods, have helped launch a new site to enable people to report racism, hatred and violent extremism on-line. This is See It Report It, which has a line of separate functions to allow people to report any racist or extremist material on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo, Daily Motion, Liveleak, Vine, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google+ and Ask FM quickly and easily. The site’s at

I mention this, because of the way the violent Islamist terrorists have used the Net to justify, recruit and glorify their vicious and brutal atrocities and White racists such as Britain First are using it to spread their own vile hatred. A number of bloggers a week or so ago acted to report a piece posted on Youtube, A Message to David Cameron, in which the speaker made it very clear that so great was his hatred for Muslims, that he wanted to go down to the south coast and shoot Muslim immigrants as they came ashore.

We need to be very aware of the dangers of on-line racial and religious hatred. It’s very good indeed that, in addition to the existing mechanism for reporting it, this new site has been launched.
