It has been two weeks since the attacks in central London. Looking into terrorism’s roots has not just been a harrowing experience, but has soon led me to realise how multi-faceted the problem is.

Does it start in schools? In places of worship? In homes? In poverty? Thousands of miles away?

More stop and search? More police? More CCTV?

Should we be prosecuting or rehabilitating?


These questions deserve much more time than any human could hope to have. Knives are what caused the most destruction 14 days ago. So these are what I will focus on.
