Australia’s ‘Extremist Infestation’

Australia’s Muslim society is “infested by extremists,” according to Imam Sheikh Mohammed Tawhidi, an Islamic cleric in Adelaide.

In the wake of the Manchester bombing on May 22, Tawhidi appeared on one of Australia’s primary morning shows, Sunrise, and stated, “We have a large number of Muslims that are extremists, even in Australia, and we see them when they come out in the Sydney riots, and we see them attacking the police.”

Tawhidi has taken flak at home and has appeared on Islamic State hit lists for his promulgation of “moderate” Islam. Despite living in supposedly peaceful Australia, the sheikh is in hiding.
