On 10th June 2008 Rashad Ali of the The Quilliam Foundation gave a presentation addressing the issues in and around the radicalisation of Muslims at the IDeA Conference in London. Rashad explained how Islamist ideology exploits grievances and political concerns, manipulating them to meet and foster their own warped ideological and political agenda.  Speaking about the programming techniques and methods that harness the mentality which justifies terror and violence, Rashad addressed issues on how to build resilience within the wider society and challenge the radicalisation of certain factions of Muslims which threaten our communities.
