05 August 2016 Current Affairs: State Minorities Commission for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh is set to unleash an awareness campaign against ISIS by getting on board Imams of a large number of mosques across the two states to thwart the attempts of the terror group to lure youths.
The Commission will hold a seminar, awareness programme and interactive session on "ISIS - Interpreting reality", which would be attended among others by Imams of nearly 300 mosques from the two states.
At the event, they would discuss ways to wean away people from the violent and ultra conservative ideology of the terror group, and educate youth about serious repercussions of getting involved in its activities through social media.
Among the speakers would be a security expert on radicalisation, a scholar who has written a book on ISIS and an adviser to multi-national companies on cyber threat.
The Minority Commissions of West Bengal, Maharashtra and Karnataka have approached Khan seeking help for organising programmes as the one taking place.
The event is being organised against the backdrop of police in several states detaining men on suspicion of having links to ISIS or planning to join the dreaded outfit. Recently, NIA busted a module in Hyderabad whose members allegedly owed allegiance to ISIS.
