Another truly moderate Islamic voice coming out of Australia :

A Bangladeshi-born Muslim psychiatrist has highlighted the dangers of apologist rhetoric in the rise of extremism in Western Nations.

Dr. Tanveer Ahmed from Sydney has worked in the prison system with accused terrorists and has called on the ABC, Australian Broadcasting COrporation, (an increasingly left biased anti-government media organisation) to stop their obsession with perceived Islamophobia.

says the national broadcaster's obsession with perceived Islamophobia was often counterproductive.
'Often the voices they reach for reinforce that because their first instinct is to quell so-called Islamophobia,'

'It keeps feeding the message that none of it is their fault, that the West is in fact against them. 'It's inaccurate and doesn't get to the source of the problem. It keeps feeding grievance, it keeps feeding this idea of Muslim grievance so in that respect it's part of the problem.

'Terrorism is, at its heart, a conflation of personal resentments with a political ideology of resentment which Islamism is.

Dr. Ahmed is a Muslim and has lived in the Australian community since he was 6 years old. He knows the community and has previously said that there is a significant proportion of Muslims holding sympathy for the justification of these atrocities. He also worked as a journalist for SBS, State Broadcasting System (another left-biased channel that has alternative and budget Australian made content and many great international cooking shows ((checkout Food Safari with Maeve O'Maera))

In the wake of the United Kingdom's third terrorist attack in 10 weeks, Dr Ahmed said the mainstream media and politicians also needed to acknowledge terrorists were following the Koran. 'It's grounded in scripture. People who commit terrorism, they are actually more devout than many other Muslims. Their actions don't come out of thin air, they're following strict instructions,' he said.

'It's important we don't tarnish all Muslims but people are just so sick of the platitudes and calls for tolerance, for unity and that Muslims are victims when in fact there's a great deal of sympathy in a significant proportion of the Muslim community for the justification of terrorism be it blaming Western colonialism, blaming racism, discrimination.

Source 'There needs to be a stronger focus on Islamic reformers who argue against the Koran being the literal, infallible word of God.'

For years the West have called on the Islamic community to denounce terror committed in the name of Allah and finally we have intelligent, logic-based Muslims standing up to call for reform in Islam and who aren't afraid to link acts of terror with the Koran. I sincerely hope these brave Muslims continue to stand up and call for intergration and change

If the change don't come, they will be among the first beheaded. That is why not many speak out.

There was this Muslim girl who called out Saudi backed imams and Mosque. I really hope she is safe and sound because they will honor kill her.

Maajid Nawaz was first a white washer that deflected the problems that after a while became a voice of reason and logic instead. If only the majority of Muslim was reforming the same way.
