This study aims to examine the conventional belief held by many counter-terrorism actors that religious extremism among Muslims is a result of Salafi activism. This leads to the assumption that by influencing one to abandon his Salafi identity is the way forward to his deradicalisation. This research argues that to complement CVE work with this assumption could potentially yield an unintended result and sway the very objective of deradicalisation further from reach.
