    According to CAIR, Islamophobes are constantly and wrongfully associating Islam with the gruesome terrorist acts of radical organizations like ISIS and al-Qaeda. However, a new complaint from a prominent and respected group of Muslim clerics prove that Quranic teaching is far more extreme than “moderate” Muslims will admit.

    Grand Mufti of Australia Ibrahim Abu Mohammad and the Australian National Imams Council, which represents 250 imams, have called for the offense of “advocating terrorism” to be abrogated from the Foreign Fighters Bill, an anti-terrorism bill currently before Parliament.

    According to WAtoday, the Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir is hosting a lecture in Lakemba on Friday to denounce “the politics and plots of the American-led intervention in Iraq and Syria.” The imams are worried that a cleric could break this new law if they merely “advocated the duty of a Muslim to defend his land.”

    In short, Muslims in Australia are upset that laws that crack down on terrorist activity and hate speech will stifle their right to preach from the Quran and Sunnah, the books which define Islam.

    “We are therefore concerned that the proposal has serious implications on free speech and will have a chilling effect on legitimate religious and political debate,” the council expressed.
