‘I’m being attacked for attacking terrorists’: Imam slams Islamic TV network criticising him for warning that radical Muslims want to create a Sharia law state in Australia

An imam who warned that extremists are trying to set up an Islamic state within Australia has slammed a Muslim TV network that claimed he was a fake.

Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi claimed last month that hardline Muslims were trying to establish a Sharia law state within Australia’s borders.

But in an extraordinary attack, Muslim television channel OnePath Network then accused him of not being a real sheikh.

Imam Tawhidi – who showed Daily Mail Australia documents and pictures proving that he is a legitimate imam – was shocked by the criticism and said the channel should be thanking him for ‘exposing extremists’.
