Obama says Muslims must do more to oppose ‘violent extremism’ in their communities

President Barack Obama asked Muslim communities in the United States to do more to weed out ‘violent extremism’ in their communities on Wednesday.

His speech, during a three-day White House summit, addressed the threat of extremism flourishing among Muslims and the need for community leaders to push back on talk that the US is ‘at war’ with the religion.

‘Muslim leaders need to do more to discredit the notion that our nations are determined to suppress Islam,’ Obama said, in reference to talk by extremist groups such as al-Qaeda and ISIS.
