>>>>>The big question remains on how to convince the governments of the Muslim nations to stop funding the Madrassas and develop a counter narrative to combat the so called terrorism.>>>>>
None of last 1500 years caliphs, kings, dictators or presidents could do it.
Governments are convinced, they know the roots, they just can't do any thing about it. Forces like Russia in Afghanistan or Mongols in Iraq couldn't do it.
To my thinking only way is natural way, let the economic conditions solve it. Teach, train and educate generations in IT and jobs.
If we keep them poor, then poverty only develops criminals and mullahs. They spread like crab grass ( a weed, A super-fast-growing annual, crab grass is the worst weed plaguing home veggie gardens ).
Muslim world had some hopes with Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei, but Brunei King turned out to be #1 N2i.
This is the war of all Muslim countries against mullahism, few will take stand but not openly.
Bangla Desh PM is the only brave women fighting these monsters but for how long, she will fall.
Pakistan Pm Imran Khan is already a N2 khan, has no courage to fight openly.
The only exception so far is Egypt Military President Fattah Sisi has some balls that he snatched the ball from Akhwaan mullah president Moursy. He is eradicationg them slowly. but they come up like weed again.
Wait till they take over Europe in fifty years starting with Belgium or Germany.
