Sufi Pir on UK tour to fight extremism with dance moves.
The tour will see Shaykh Hisham visit mosques in Peckham in south London, Ilford in Essex, Rochdale, Sheffield, Manchester, Bury and Birmingham as well as East Lancashire.
Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph today, Shaykh Hisham, who is based in the USA but was born in Beruit, said preaching moderation was important because there was a “real concern” that extremists were targeting mosques.
He said: “There are too many violent ideas and anti-Western thoughts being spread to young people in communities in Lancashire.
“There is a radical minority but they must be shunned and ignored.
“The real Islam isn’t bombing and terror but we must discuss the problems so we can avoid them.”
Below is the ‘Real Islam’ show Hisham Kabbani and his Sufi Muslim council put up in Burnley in 2007. In this video they are teaching the ‘Real Islam’ to UK police and a local Mayor, no doubt such shows will be put on again with the help of funding from UK tax payers… all in the name of fighting extremism.
