Patrick Sookhdeo speaks on Islam Channel against racism and neo-Nazism

Country/Region: South and East Asia, Pakistan

Barnabas Fund’s International Director Dr Patrick Sookhdeo spoke on the Islam Channel against racism and neo-Nazism in a discussion about a new study that highlights growing online support for far right groups in Europe.

He was one of the guests on the Politics and Media Show, which explored the findings of “The New Face of Digital Populism” by leading think-tank Demos, on Monday 14 November, 2011.

Based on a study of 10,000 online supporters, the report outlines how social media are being harnessed by far right groups to further their agendas.

The Islam Channel’s Politics and Media Show explained how Muslims are concerned about the rise of the far right and support for such groups on the internet; they fear the provocation of a racist, even violent response against them.

Dr Sookhdeo spoke of his personal experience as a victim of racism first in the 1960s when his family moved to the UK and more recently in the 1990s when he was beaten up by members of the National Front.

He strongly condemned the rise of racist and neo-Nazi movements, and argued that attacks on Muslims are totally unacceptable.

Dr Sookhdeo said that Britain and Europe, owing to the rise of secular humanism, were without a moral and spiritual rudder, and this is leading to the rise of extremism.

    • Continue to remember Pastor Tandin Wangyal, who is serving a prison sentence of almost four years in the small nation of Bhutan, only because he received funds from outside the country to help support his ministry. Ask God to sustain our brother at this time, so that he will draw comfort from God’s grace. Pray that his faith will not fail. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 4 hours ago

    • Dear Lord Jesus, we pray for freedom for the thousands of Eritrean Christian refugees who have fled from escalating anti-Christian persecution in their home country, and are being detained in prisons in Egypt. You said that You had been sent to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and to set the oppressed free. We especially ask your healing for women and men who have been raped in prison, and for your grace for those who have been kept chained for months, suffering hunger, torture and abuse. Please free these faithful ones, who suffer for Your Name. (Luke 4:18,21) Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Praise God for the continued Christian presence in northern Mali, despite the apparent desire of jihadists to wipe it out. Most of the Christians who had fled the region when Islamist radicals took control in 2012 have now returned to their homes, after French troops ousted the Islamists. Many church buildings were desecrated, looted or severely damaged, but the Christians are determined to resume their ministries. Pray for their protection.

    • Continue to pray for church leaders in Christian-majority Burundi that they may have wisdom in responding to the unfamiliar situation of political restriction by their own government. A new law passed in August requires each church to have at least 500 members and a proper building; congregations were given a year to comply. Pray that religious liberty will be maintained in Burundi, both for Christians and for the small minorities who follow other religions. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Heavenly Father, we pray to you for our Christian brothers and sisters in north-eastern Nigeria, who are so vulnerable in the face of attacks by Boko Haram militants. We remember especially those who used to live in Shani, in Borno state, until their town was raided by Boko Haram on 29 November. We cry out to You to intervene and bring an end to the murderous attacks by Boko Haram. We pray for all the thousands of Nigerian Christians who have suffered in similar attacks that they will not lose hope or faith in You, but will know Your peace which passes understanding.
