Following last Monday’s terror attack in Manchester, Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi appeared on Australian television to skewer the liberal narrative that Islam has nothing to do with extremism.
“We need to be very realistic when dealing with this matter,” began Tawhidi, who has frequently come under fire from his fellow Muslims for his pragmatic view of the religion.
In reference to Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, Tawhidi continued, “you have a 22-year-old who gets radicalized over two, three sermons, within a Friday mosque gathering.”
“Now, this age, is an age when someone would expect people to be going out, having fun, but no we have a large number of youth that are being radicalized.”
When the other panelist, Dr. Jamal Rifi, tried to counter his argument, Tawhidi fired back “Do not lie to the Australian nation.”
