Cardiff, 29 Jumadil Awwal 1436/20 March 2015 (MINA) – Muslim women are holding a conference in Cardiff to make a stand against Islamic extremism and radicalism.
It is one of a series of events around the UK to champion the importance of Muslim women’s voices in society, BBC News quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
It is being organised by Inspire, a counter-extremism and human rights group.
“Women are the backbone of our communities and the first line of defence against radicalisers,” said director Sara Khan.
The #MakingAStand conference aims to give women practical tips on “making a stand – as individuals and as groups – in building stable and peaceful communities by challenging hateful, bigoted and extreme views”.(T/P008/R03)
