Crest reviews The Battle for British Islam – “a must read before passing judgement on home-grown extremism”

Sara Khan’s provocative title is more than just an attention grabber. She has spent years fighting extremist Islam in Britain, most recently as the director of Inspire, an organisation that tackles extremism through empowering women. Her thoughtful and detailed book draws lessons from the front through Sara’s countless interactions with British Muslims and through the urgent lens of Prevent, the Home Office’s deployment of counter-terrorism strategy. This book is the perfect introduction to those who engage with British Islam, extremist or not, and who want a map for the road. It is also a must read before passing judgement on home-grown extremism and counter-radicalisation.
