British Muslims' message to ISIL: Not in my name!
Text size Aa Aa

A powerful campaign by British Muslims to condemn the actions of the Islamic State militant movement is gaining momentum.

“Not in my name”, led by the Active Change Foundation, is attempting to counter the presence of extremism on social media.

The campaign was praised in the recent speech by the US President to the UN General Assembly.

President Obama said the whole world, especially Muslim communities, had to expose and publicly renounce the ideologies of hatred and violence.

He added the militants cannot be allowed to continue “perverting one of the world’s great religions”.

The “Not in my name” campaign has now spread to other countries too.
