With a series of books and award-winning films behind him, Noor Huda Ismail is a respected academic in the study of terrorism in Indonesia. He also founded the Yayasan Prasasti Perdamaian, a foundation dedicated to the deradicalization of former terrorists through livelihood support, coaching and training.

Noor Huda spent his formative years at the Pesantren Al-Mukmin Islamic boarding school in Ngruki, Sukoharjo near Surakarta in Central Java. Cofounder Abu Bakr Ba’asyir was jailed for terrorist offences and is believed by many to have been the spiritual leader of the al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist network Jemaah Islamiyah. Al-Mukmin graduates went on to perpetrate the Bali bombings in October 2022 and other acts of terrorism over the decade that followed.
