Local Muslim organisations must do more
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-
Bissessar says it is unacceptable
that several of T&T's youths are
leaving to fight with terrorist
Speaking at her post Eid-ul-Fitr
celebrations at the Diplomatic Cen-
tre in St Ann s on Thursday, Per-
sad-Bissessar said the example of
brotherhood was not emulated
In recent months, there have
been reports of Trinidadians leaving
to join terrorist organisations such
as the Islamic State of Iraq and
"Here at home we also face the
undesirable situation of some of our
young citizens leaving to fight with
these terrorist organisations. We
cannot allow this behaviour to con-
tinue my dear brothers and sisters.
"We must work together and
double our efforts to create an envi-
ronment in which our young people
may achieve their goals and suc-
ceed, but more so they must under-
stand that they have a significant
role to play right here in T&T to
build our country," she said.
She said the celebration of Eid
this year, for many Muslims around
the world, came amidst increasing
hostility, fear and intolerance of the
Muslim faith and its followers.
Persad-Bissessar said much of
this "Islamophobia" originated with
terrorist groups committing

our beloved nation deserve to ben-
efit from our resources and wealth."
If we are to succeed, she said,
and prosper as a nation, we must
move beyond our differences into
the realm of what bound us together
and made us stronger.
"I look forward to building on the
positive relationship my Govern-
ment shares with the Muslim com-
munity, as we pursue our agenda
for national development," she said.
No. People are talking too much
and not doing anything about it.
No. Enough is not being done. The
amount of money spent on elec-
tions is the same money that can
be used to bring in specialised
equipment to solve murders and
other violent crime.
I will say yes and I will say no.
Crime is a social problem. Unless
we as a society understand that
crime is a social problem it will
not be curbed. More jail and police
will not stop crime. The only peo-
ple to stop crime is we.
I don't think so. Look at the
amount of crime you see in the
news. The Government is not put-
ting things in place, neither are
they giving the police the equip-
ment to solve and curb crime in

in the community. They should
have a thorough search of the

No. They cannot curb or reduce
crime if the police are involved in
