Anjem Choudary’s Conviction Is A Victory For Tolerance

Extremists prey on the weak, the vulnerable and the disenfranchised in order to build a following, and as such, governments have a dual responsibility to their citizens in this area; they must not only protect them from violence through security measures, but they must also protect them from falling victim to radicalisation through stronger social measures. With this in mind, the Model Law provides for tolerance education and the broad inclusion of these principles from early years through to adulthood, as changing a culture must involve all levels of society. The UK government’s recent push to counter extremism in universities and colleges acknowledges the significance of education in this struggle, but will not be far-reaching enough to have a broader impact on society.
