Sheikh who angered Muslims by denouncing Sharia law needs full time security

The controversial sheikh who angered hardline Muslims by denouncing Sharia law has asked his supporters for $30,000 to pay for security guards and steel-barred windows at his home because he fears for his life.

Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi, who has previously called for Islamic schools in Australia to be shut down and criticised extreme Islamic group Hizb-ut Tahrir, said abuse he received from radical
Muslims grew so bad he was forced to abandon his home and seek refuge.

‘I’ve been assaulted by Muslim leaders, ambushed and spat on in the streets,’ he told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday.
