Regarding conflict resolution and resolving problems of western communities in case of radicalism and terrorism, Dr. Bahmanpour required the related authorities in western governments to play their role effectively. He advocated that some of the authorities here in the west in case of integration issues concerning some of immigrants and Muslim youths either lacks the knowledge and practical procedures or have no will in this respect.
Statically speaking, Bahmanpour revealed that despite the public view in some communities, those Muslim youths involving in terrorist incidents are not the ones who pray five times daily and go to mosques but some of those who go to night clubs.
