NGOs, women groups must engage in deradicalisation of youths: Rajnath

NEW DELHI: Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said religious groups, non-Governmental organisations (NGOs) and women groups must be actively involved to help bring back misguided people into the mainstream, as radicalisation of youths becomes a matter of concern.
Chairing the 21st meeting of the governing council of the National Foundation for Communal Harmony (NFCH) here, Singh also said attempts to disrupt communal harmony has been a matter of concern not only for the Government, but for everyone.
Social and religious groups including NGOs and women organisations must be actively involved in deradicalisation efforts, the Home Minister said.
He said despite being the second most populous country, India has been negligibly affected by radicalisation. Full credit for this goes to the minorities and their religious leaders and the composite culture and traditions of India, the Home Minister said. (AGENCIES)
