A report – “Faith, Hope and Clarity” commissioned by ‘Faith Matters’

Muslim Communities Can Help Keep Us All Safe By Re-Integrating Convicted Islamist Terrorists says Ian Acheson (former prison governor and reviewer of Islamist Extremism in Prisons) in his recent report “Faith, Hope and Clarity”.

His argument is a partnership of community and statutory authorities is the best approach to reintegrating terrorist offenders and keeping us safe in the long term. Ian makes the case that through a community re-integration programme called the ‘Sunnah’ concept, this can be achieved. This concept empowers a core of carefully selected community based supporters who provide a ‘virtuous circle’ around the offender.

They can

  • challenge Islamist ideology,
  • ensure behaviour is appropriate,
  • monitor risk,
  • and provide practical help.
