May 22, 2016, Brooklyn, NY — Turkish Cultural Center in Brooklyn organized an interfaith discussion, titled “Combating Extremism Cancer” with the partnership of St. Athanasius Church, and Fountain Magazine in Brooklyn. The guest speaker of the event was Hakan Yesilova, Chief Editor of Fountain Magazine.
The program was created in response to the lead article published by The Fountain Magazine in November 2015 that denounced terrorism and to correct false associations of violence with religion. In recent years, communities across the United States and around the World have been suffering from extremist views, fueled by inflammatory and hateful resorting to violence in the society.
