Yesterday young Muslims in the Norwegian capital Oslo held a meeting with representatives of other religions to express their opposition to religious extremists and the crimes committed by the radical Islamist terrorist organization ISIS in Iraq and Syria. News server The Nordic Page reports that thousands of people attended the assembly on Grønland Square.

During their march toward the Norwegian Parliament, almost 10 000 people shouted slogans such as "ISIS does not act in the name of Islam" and "For peace, against ISIS terror". The Nordic Page quotes one participant, Mr Yousef Bartho Assidiq, as saying it is just as necessary to "take Oslo back" from extremist groups like the "Prophet's Ummah" as it is to protect the capital against racists.  

Ms Faten Al-Mahdi Hussein, age 19, gave a speech in front of the Norwegian Parliament saying she would rather call the extremist cell "The Devil's Ummah" and emphasizing that it is essential to distinguish between "normal" Muslims and those who might call themselves Muslim but who completely lack authentically Muslim attitudes. The demonstration against ISIS and religious extremism was supported by Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
