The real threat posed by ISIS, which is one that will linger on, is its ideological allure - one that has been able to indoctrinate people born and raised in the West, thousands of miles away.

The Solution to Stopping ISIS? Look in the Quran

Saying that the Qur'an is the real culprit of Belgian terror attacks would be the same as saying that the Bible is the real culprit behind the Spanish Inquisition. Both of these statements are false.

Muslims claim their religion teaches peace, harmony, love and goodness while the actions of some so-called adherents to the faith prove contrary. How can it be that on the one hand, the religion teaches good while some Muslims commit evil?

You're seven times more likely to be shot by a right wing extremist in the United States than you are to be shot by a Muslim extremist. But I guess facts don't stop many Americans from being deathly afraid of all Muslims.

Imagine a local bookseller in the United States being arrested by the federal government in his own bookstore and being charged with a federal crime. His crime: the sale of books deemed hurtful or hateful to another religious group's beliefs. His punishment: eight years in prison.

We must understand that the only way to defeat the ISIS narrative is by providing a reformist counter-narrative that is based on intellectual honesty and truth. Such a narrative exists. Let us support it, not fight it.

The rise of the educated Ahmadis who profess a pluralistic, peaceful version of Islam is problematic. The power of the Mullah rests on getting people riled up, ready to give their lives for their faith.
