Radicalization of young people is alarming: Prince Charles
Jan 8, London: Prince Charles ofWales, in an interview with a British Radio Channel, Radio 2 on Sunday, poured concern over the radicalization of the youth through the internet.
“The extent to which young people are becoming radicalised is alarming and one of the greatest worries,” he said, before adding that it has become necessary to work on building bridges between faiths.
Prince Charles, who is on a six-day tour of the region, also stated that he is deeply concerned about the treatment of Christian churches in the Middle East. Charles had arrived to the Jordanian capital Amman on Saturday night.
While speaking about the radicalization of the youth, Prince Charles said: “You think that the people who have come here, [are] born here, go to school here, would imbibe those values and outlooks.”The frightening part is that people can be so radicalised either through contact with somebody else or through the internet, and the extraordinary amount of crazy stuff which is on the internet.”
