Dr Jonathan Leader Maynard recently took part in two extended interviews on TalkRadio to discuss recent terrorist bombings which have taken place in Brussels and Lahore.

Commenting on the Brussels bombing, Jonathan argued that the attacks were an attempt to increase tension between Muslims and non-Muslims in the West.

Comparing the attacks in Lahore to those in Brussels, Jonathan says "It's completely different in the main part, because it's a totally different organisation who has perpetrated the attack... They're similar, there are ideological similarities, but that's an important aspect of what's different between these two attacks."
