In recent months, the phenomenon of radicalization and extremism among certain elements of society has grown and become cause for concern across the country. In the wake of several Americans, many of whom were born and raised in America, having gone abroad to wage a bloody “jihad” with terrorist groups in foreign lands, radicalization has become one of the most puzzling and worrying issues of the past 2 years.


On November 14, 2014, some twenty-five countries were in attendance as Dr. Bilal Rana, National President, Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, addressed ambassadors, country representatives, and various international leaders in a speech titled “Islamic Solutions to Muslim Youth Radicalization.” Missionary Incharge, Imam Naseem Mahdi, also provided guidance to the audience regarding true Islamic teachings. The presentations were followed by an engaging Q&A session.
