Pointing fingers at a whole community out of blind panic seems to be the bandaid solution to ease the troubled Western mind. Self-appointed, as well as government appointed, saviours have taken it upon themselves to liberate you from your clothing, your parents, your God and your natural born inclinations to become a jihadi fighter or British bride living in an ISIS paradise. Find out about religion the way people used to, by reading holy books and their historical surrounding texts and learning from knowledgeable and credible people. Learn to put yourself at the centre of your story, move away from seeing yourself through the eyes of others. You decide that in order to survive like your immigrant parents did you need to find secure work. You study all the boring safe A-Levels and get the grades you need to do something academic that will make you more employable. You are ticking their little BME inclusion box and they are helping you to learn new skills and to connect with like minded people who may later become part of your radical art massive.
