It is unlikely Tawhidi is sincerely trying to expunge the Quran of misogyny, Jew-hatred, incitement to violence against infidels, and the rest. But even what he has said against sharia being brought to Australia has brought him the ire of the devout Muslim he encountered on a Sydney street, who called the curse of Allah upon him. This is completely counter to the mainstream narrative. If Muslims in Australia and all over the West were the way they’re described by Western leaders and the establishment media, Muslims in Australia would be hailing Tawhidi as a hero.
“‘May God curse you, you pig, you dog’: Islamic leader Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi abused by Muslims as he walks down the street in Sydney,” by Stephen Johnson, Daily Mail Australia, May 2, 2017:
An Islamic sheikh who speaks out against radicalisation and sharia law has been cursed and spat at while walking down the street in the Muslim heartland of Sydney.
Shia imam Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi was mobbed with abuse only moments after strolling along Haldon Street in Lakemba, which is home to Australia’s largest mosque.
A man shouted in Arabic as he ventured past shops with 7News reporter Bryan Seymour shortly before noon on Monday.
Asked by what the insult meant, Sheikh Tawhidi said: ‘It means, ‘May God curse you, you pig, you dog.’
After only a few minutes, Sheikh Tawhidi and the 7News crew returned to an unmarked van to avoid the possibility of violence.
Closed Facebook groups began sharing abuse online, with a Lebanese Muslim man using the Arabic word for dog to suggest there should have been a violent confrontation.
‘This kalb walking through Lakemba. Can’t believe no one did anything,’ he said.
Sheikh Tawhidi, who moved to Australia from Iraq when he was 12 in 1995, said this was the first time he had experienced abuse of this nature.
‘We were abused, spat at, insulted, called pigs and dogs and they gathered to try and intimidate us,’ the Adelaide-based religious leader told Daily Mail Australia shortly after the incident.
‘I have never been insulted or abused in Australia by any non-Muslim.
‘I have never suffered from racial discrimination at all and today was the first time that I ever experienced racial discrimination in my entire life and it was from a Muslim.’
Sheikh Tawhdidi said the holy Koran had influenced the men who abused him on Monday.
“Holy Koran”? Does the Daily Mail refer to the “Holy Bible”?
‘They believe the land belongs to God and they are the chosen nation of God and that everybody that doesn’t believe in the God that they believe in, the way they believe in, then it’s basically not their land and they have no right to be on it,’ he said….
