An Indonesian cleric who heads the world’s biggest Muslim organization in world made a bold statement on Islamophobia, arguing that fear of Islam is a direct reaction to Islamic extremism.

Yahya Cholil Staquf is the secretary general of the Indonesian organization Nahdlatul Ulama, with has more than 90 million members.

In an article for U.K.’s Daily Telegraph, Staquf shared his belief that “to prevent another Christchurch [attack], Islam must confront the attacks in its name that have radicalized the West.”

The fact that one of the senior members of the world’s largest Muslim organization has publicly made that statement (which is usually made only in private), gives hope to others to be able to have bold dialogues on critical generational and theological issue.
