By Stephen Johnson For Daily Mail Australia, 15 November 2018 (thanks to Greg):

A Muslim imam has discovered a Sharia law book advocating jihad and hostage taking in Melbourne international airport’s Islamic prayer room.

Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi, a Shia imam who campaigns against Islamic extremism, saw the Arabic language book shortly before boarding a flight.

The Adelaide-based Shia religious leader and author made a video of himself flicking through the index, which featured references to jihad, ‘taking hostages at war’ and taxing ‘infidel’ non-Muslims.

Shortly before boarding his flight, he told Daily Mail Australia a fundamentalist Sunni Islamic law book had the potential to ‘certainly radicalise someone’.

‘It can turn a regular traveller or a frustrated, vulnerable traveller into an extremist,’ he said, shortly after midday on Thursday. ‘It goes against national security.’

Sheikh Tawhidi said that while the book of Islamic jurisprudence was possibly planted by an activist, Melbourne airport needed to ‘take action’.

Several hours later, Melbourne Airport tweeted to Sheikh Tawhidi to confirm they had removed the Arabic language book, Fiqh us-Sunnah, by Egyptian Sunni Islamic scholar As-Sayyid Sabiq.

‘Thanks for your message. We have a publicly accessible multi-faith prayer room open to travellers of various religions,’ it said.

‘The book has been removed for assessment of its suitability.’

The book about the practices of the Prophet Mohammad was authored by a prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a pan-Sunni Islamist group campaigning for a global Islamic caliphate.
