Prominent British Muslim, Dr Hasanat Husain, depicts the Islamic State as “composed of people who have vowed to establish a blood-drenched caliphate in which only their distorted version of Islam – a fusion of misogyny, intolerance and mayhem – will hold sway." We have an obligation,” he writes in the London Daily Telegraph on September 18, “to snatch our faith from the clutches of these killers. These so-called Muslims are damaging Islam and dishonoring the Prophet.”  He calls on Muslims “in particular” to stop the Islamic State (IS) from the pursuit of its unacceptable objective.
