I just got back from Marrakesh where I was invited to an “Expert Workshop on Middle East and North Africa Collection of Counter-Narratives for Countering Violent Extremism (CVE)”. The invitees were Hidayah Center, Search For Common Ground and the State Department.
I presented my Qur’an Translation as the best Counter Narrative to Daesh. They use verses from the Qur’an to lure young people and we should use verses from the Qur’an. My paper was very well received.
My wife Eman presentation was very impressive. She brought real life example about the importance of teaching children to accept the other and to avoid teaching hatred.
