A School In Britain Gives Students Anti-ISIS Classes
London:  An Islamic school in Britain is holding classes for students as young as 11 years old in order to help them recognise the extremist propaganda online.

More than 600 students aged between 11 and 16 attend the Al-Hira Educational and Cultural Centre in Luton, Bedfordshire, each week for weekend and evening classes on the Quran and anti-ISIS for the last eight months, the Daily Mail reported on Sunday.

"The premise is simple and I believe that there is an ideological war. As well as IS promoting their crimes they misuse the Quran. We want to teach the children the real message of the Quran and for their mind to be clear," Imam Muhammad Ehsan Ullah said.

"If you ask any Muslim they would tell you that it is completely against Islam to kill any innocent person," he added.

Luton has seen a number of people leaving Britain in order to join the ISIS and the lectures aim to teach students how ISIS is targeting young people like them on social media.

In 2015, a family of 12 left Luton to travel to Syria to join ISIS and in May 2016 two men were convicted for plotting to join ISIS to kill US soldiers.
