Why isn’t Islam being investigated by child sex abuse Royal Commission? Calls for probe into female genital mutilation, child brides and claims of underage sex

There are calls for Islamic organisations to be investigated by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

The commission has already probed a number of religious organisations in its four-year existence, including Catholics, Anglicans, Pentecostals and Jehovah’s Witnesses, but Islam has so far escaped scrutiny, according to the Herald Sun.

Prominent lawyer Peter Kelso says the commission is intentionally avoiding Islamic groups because ‘there is a culture of fear in that community’.

    The Royal Commission could use itself as an example of the typical institutional response to cases of child sexual abuse – just ignore it – that they were set up to investigate.

    I guess they go for underage sex as they can see the “woman”. All the grown ups are wearing body bags.

    Fixed it.

      Excellent correction. Came here to say exactly this, The fear is on the Commission’s side and is the direct result of veiled threats, violence, intimidation and bullying from “in that community”.

      He’s a lying lawyer, but he would say he misspoke. Should be “there is a culture of fear OF that community and I’m a coward.”

    To answer the question in the headline, because that would be Islamophobic.
