Recognition

 

Senator Hugh Segal, The Hon. Chair of the Senate of Canada's Special Committee on Anti-Terrorism says, "(Sayyid AHmed Amiruddin) is one Canadian who is working to prevent bad things from happening and I think his advice and insights will be of immense value to our committee".

 

Wilfred Laurier University’s “The Laurier M.A. Journal of Religion and Culture” writes, “…the establishment of Amiruddin’s Al Sunnah Foundation and the twelve-step program…can be seen as inspiring and reinforcing the flurry of activism that has continued to emerge from within the community since mid-2009…activism includes Canadian-based sheikh Tahir ul-Qadri independently issuing a 600-page document in London in March 2010, thoroughly refuting any potential theological justifications for Islamic extremism and going so far as to state that terrorists and suicide bombers are destined for damnation”.

 

In 'Keeping Canadians Safe' Dr. Keith Martin, P.C., M.P. writes:

 

"...Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin is one of those leaders. He has a 12-step de-radicalization program that focuses on creating a counter-narrative...identifying at risk youth to illustrate to them murder is a violation of the Koran and God, and ensuring that those suffering from psychiatric illnesses get the medical treatment they need".

 

Georgetown University's Professor of Islamic Studies, and one of the world’s leading academics on Islam and spirituality Dr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr Writes,  “I hope that God will aid your organization”.

 

Al Sunnah Foundation of Canada (ASFC) WAS INCORPORATED AS A REGISTERED CHARITABLE NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION since 2006.
