mUmBRELLA: Muslim group tackles confusion over the meaning of Jihad
A campaign to disassociate ‘Jihad’ with terrorism is coming to Australia. Muslim group the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Chicago chapter is to run bus ads “to reclaim Jihad from the Muslim and anti-Muslim extremists” in Sydney and Melbourne, the Herald Sun reported today.
The campaign, which centres on the website myjihad.org, aims to explain the real meaning of Jihad – personal struggle – and distance the word from links to extremism. It is also to run in London, Manchester and Toronto.
