A group of young British Muslims have declared their own “jihad” against Isis and all other terrorist groups.The Muslim Youth League UK announced an ideological holy war against the Islamic State at a conference in Glasgow on Sunday, saying militants had “no link with Islam or the Muslim community”.
It is concerned that recruitment by the group is on the rise in the UK, targeting teenage girls and boys with gory propaganda videos and social media accounts boasting of life under the “caliphate”.
Shaykh Rehan Ahmed Raza, president of Muslim Youth League UK, said:
“Our efforts are aimed at deterring further ISIS recruitment in Britain and defending the Muslim community, who feel their religion has been hijacked.”
The Muslim Youth League represents young Muslims in the UK and aims to promote unity and tolerance.
