Main Article Content
The main objective of this article is to study extremist religious narratives, especially the narratives of ISIS in Southeast Asia. Understanding the narratives of extremists is important to any effort to prevent and counter the spread of extremist violence. The author argues that Islam is not a source or an inspiration for extremism; the extremists, rather, have exploited Islamic religious principles as a tool to achieve their political aims. The ISIS in Southeast Asia has, to some extent, utilized their narratives for recruiting and changing people minds by inducing them to accept their violent approach. The narratives of ISIS in Southeast Asia can best be divided into four categories, namely extremist political narratives, religious narratives, social narratives and the narratives on economic aspects. However, the main argument of this study is that all those extremist narratives being used by the extremists also exist in the mainstream Islamic principles. The question is how to differentiate between the extremist narratives and the Islamic principles adhered to by the majority of Muslim World. Failing to substantially acknowledge the differences between the two will cause fear or suspicion of Muslims and make it impossible to develop suitable “Counter-Extremist narratives”.
