If someone confesses a belief in values deemed to be ‘extreme’, they are on the path to violence and should be referred to #Prevent; those who do not or no longer believe in these values are deemed ‘safe’. 

But there is scant evidence to suggest that such an approach works The focus on ideological factors, as found in Prevent, ignores a host of other causes behind violence, and assumes a linear progression between #thought and #action
It also means that it is almost impossible to assess whether Prevent is having any positive impact

The Roots

As a parent, you are forced to address your own baggage and internal biases in order to parent from a secure and healthy place.
And while the parenting industrial complex encourages us to do this with regards to our own emotional makeup, we very rarely take the time we very rarely take the time to interrogate how a media landscape that constantly positions the Muslim and Islam as ‘Other’, has impacted our sense of belief and practice.

It's beautiful to hear the upper classes talk, sneer & discuss their anxieties,
