Jago Nari Unnayon Sangsta (JNUS) had implemented a three months (May to July 2018) project entitled, "Creating Intercommunity Engagement against Violent Extremism" at Ramu Upazila of Cox's Bazar District. It is funded by Management Systems International (MSI). As there had been a history of violent extremism at Ramu Upazilla in the form of attacks on minority communities such as, attack on Buddhist communities in 2012, it contributed to widening trust gaps across communities and institutions and fractured social and political life and a non-conducive political environment. In addition, the recent Rohingya influx instigated negative views and fear towards minority groups. Due to the increase in VE propaganda, local citizens had been feeling frightened. Therefore, this project had made an endeavor to repair the existing social relations promoting trust, confidence and mutual understanding and prepare the youth and community actors in order to enhance social cohesion and peaceful coexistence at the community level of of Ramu Upazila with an aim to preventing radicalization and violent extremism. This initiative was effective for this MSI approached to extend this project for next two months.
