On 10th March 2009, QOTU’s Trainer Ishtiaq Hussain was invited to speak at Leeds University on ‘The processes of radicalization’. This lecture was part of the M.A. in Terrorism.


Ishtiaq discussed radicalization and some of the causes of radicalization in the UK. He spoke about the Islamic faith and those who had interpreted the Islamic faith as a political ideology. 


The talk focused on how individuals are recruited into radical organizations and what the driving factors were once they were inside these organizations. A lively Q & A followed.
