About the Show

ISIS may be losing ground in the Middle East. But its call for Muslims in Southeast Asia to wage holy war in Marawi has been echoed by Al-Qaeda, for Muslims to take up arms on behalf of the Rohingyas. And a number from the region have responded. In Singapore, self-radicalised individuals may not be many but there are signs that there is a trust deficit between religious groups and a danger that prejudice could grow. CNA correspondent Sujadi Siswo speaks to religious leaders, experts and those who had previously fallen for extremist rhetoric to learn more about the threats, to the region and to our home; what causes people to be influenced by extremist points of view, and what can be done to mitigate that influence.
