A controversial Islamic halal businessman says Muslim men who illegally marry underage child brides are treated worse than paedophiles.
Mohamed Elmouelhy told his Facebook followers Muslim men who break the law are often hated more than Australia’s worst sex offenders.
‘While two Muslim men married two young teenagers it became a big scandal, thousands of paedophiles get a slam on the hand,’ he said.

The 74-year-old business leader says the media is even harsher on Muslim sex offenders
The 74-year-old founder of the Halal Certification Authority said his social media post was a comment about anti-Muslim sentiment in Australian society.
‘So many times there is something about Muslims, the media always blow it up,’ he told Daily Mail Australia on Sunday.
‘I honestly do not know of anybody who has married a child or that I approve of it, or that I know any Muslim in this country who approves of it.’
The Egyptian-born businessman said he disapproved of child brides and polygamy.
He’s lying. In reality, he approves of it. That’s why he complains about it. He doesn’t want infidels to take any action against it.
‘It is wrong in both cases,’ he said.
But Muhammad, profit of Islam, was a pedophile.
Earlier this year, Melbourne Muslim man Mohammad Shakir, 34, pleaded guilty to going through with an illegal Islamic wedding ceremony to a 14-year-old girl.
Former Islamic cleric Ibrahim Omerdic, who was the imam of the Bosnian Islamic Society, avoided jail for presiding over that ceremony at Noble Park Mosque.
Mohamed Elmouelhy’s July Facebook post suggested Australian men would die out in 40 years
Mr Elmouelhy, who is semi-retired, has returned to making public Facebook posts after Daily Mail Australia revealed in July his controversial post about Australian men.
His post had said Australian men are a ‘dying breed’ who would ‘be extinct in another 40 years’.
He has since clarified that post to explain he was referring to Australian bigots and not all Australian men, following a backlash which saw Australian Conservatives senator Cory Bernardi call for him to be deported.
‘You have people like Cory Bernardi, who is one way or another against Muslims,’ Mr Elmouelhy said, also singling out One Nation leader Pauline Hanson and Nationals MP George Christensen.
Mr Elmouelhy, who moved to Australia in 1975 after studying in Italy and Britain, has weighed into the gay marriage debate, explaining he supported matrimony being between a man and a woman.
His Facebook suggested same-sex attracted people should have platonic friendships.
‘While Muslim men marry women they are required to love other Muslim men and the same for women, they are required to love other Muslim women,’ he said.
‘This does not mean that men should have sex with other men they love, and the same goes for women.’
However, Mr Elmouelhy said someone could still be gay and Muslim.
‘There are even homosexual Muslims. Are we denying the obvious?,’ he said.
‘There are Muslims who commit fornication outside of marriage.
‘There are criminal Muslims.’
He also acknowledged that many Muslims would vote ‘yes’ in the same-sex marriage postal vote.
‘The sky is not going to fall regardless of what your vote is,’ he said.
