This subject analyses critically the process of radicalisation, while addressing the influence of extreme ideological theological interpretation on Muslim societies in the twenty-first century. It examines radical ideology and narrative and provides a Muslim mainstream counter-narrative with consideration of the Islamic theological perspective on violence. It also studies the root causes of violent extremism and terrorism attributed to Muslims. In addition, the notion of jihad is analysed since it is one of the key concepts misinterpreted by extremist Islamic groups.
