Washington: Being a devout practising Muslim himself, Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb has urged Muslims to distance themselves from extremist attacks, falsely linked to their religion, stressing that dialogue and education can eliminate misconceptions about Islam. “More than ever, international tensions are having an impact on the local community. For that reason, there must be room for anger and grief,” Mayor Aboutaleb said in his speech in the White House in Washington, last fortnight.
