ING Statement on Religious Extremism; 12/11/09ING is saddened and disturbed to learn of the recent alleged attempt at terrorism on a flight to Detroit by a Nigerian national. This incident comes closely on the heels of the arrests of 5 missing young American Muslim students in Pakistan where they had allegedly traveled to join groups that promote a twisted ideology that sanctions indiscriminate violence and chaos. Ameena Jandali, founding member of ING stated in a recent forum, “we must all takes steps in our mosques and other organizations as well as in the greater society to counter the threat that extremist ideology poses to our youth, and take steps to address it by providing education on Islam’s teachings about moderation, mercy, the sanctity of innocent human lives and the primacy of skecurity in society.” Read More

Listening to Those We Serve
The entire experience of planning a series of seminars with ING was inspirational. They did an amazing job. The ING team welcomed input along the way which allowed each session to be even better than the one before it. We will continue to work with ING as I am confident that they will continue to provide value in our work.

I thought the ING seminar, “Preventing and Responding to Anti-Muslim Bigotry,” was an extremely valuable training for law enforcement, especially in today’s day and age with all the misunderstandings and misperceptions of the Muslim community…I feel this training will help my staff and I in developing better relationships and in responding to the needs of our community. I highly recommend this training to others.
