What is the extremist narrative?


The government and the state are in a dilemma over the extremist religious narrative: if they do identify its broad features they will invite the wrath of the community of clerics, and if they try to evolve a counter-narrative they will have to revise policies, laws and restructure institutions developed with a deep sense of exclusivist and, in some ways, extremist religious content and identity. Here we will focus on the extremist religious narrative that has placed both state and society in a very precarious situation.
