Abstract

 

The growing menace of terrorism can be kept in check with the help of influential religious organisations and seminaries. The recent active involvement of Darul Uloom Deoband of India at the civil-society level to build up movement against terrorism has yielded positive results across religious and sectarian divides in India. It is a stratergy that can be replicated in other parts of the world. By issuing the far-reaching fatwa and launcing the campaign against terrorism, Deoband had not only disapproved of terrorism but also set an example how Muslims and madrasahs in other parts of the world can play a role in checking the radicalisation of Muslim youth. In fact, the Deoband approach has been practised by many Islamic groups and movements in the Muslim world such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Turkey.
