‘These children will have problems growing up’: Moderate Muslim imam slams fundamentalist preacher

A Muslim imam who speaks out against radicalisation has slammed an Islamic fundamentalist for saying parents should ban their children from listening to music in the car.

Adelaide-based Shia leader Mohammad Tawhidi has taken aim at western Sydney Sunni fundamentalist morals campaigner Nassim Abdi’s rant about children ‘drowning in music’.

‘These children will have problems growing up without a doubt,’ Sheikh Tawhidi told Sydney radio 2GB presenter Ben Fordham on Tuesday.

    Listening to music in the car, but they won’t grow up any further. Darwin Awards.

    Apparently, Kurds have no problem with music and dance (or with women getting glammed up on special occasions).

  • Love the pic. I remember those days. It was so funny to see my teenage sister crying and going into hysteria when they showed the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show for the first time. I ended up hating the Beatles, and everybody else I hung out with hated them too (most of us were amateur musicians). Until Sergeant Pepper’s came out years later 🙂

    I guess Mr. Imam didn’t care for Chuck Berry either:
    “Riding along in my automobile
    My baby beside me at the wheel
    I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
    My curiosity runnin’ wild
    Crusin’ and playin’ the radio
    With no particular place to go”
