Lakemba: Sheik Tawhidi escapes sunni stronghold unharmed

‘May God curse you, you pig, you dog’: Islamic leader Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi abused by Muslims as he walks down the street in Sydney

The Daily Mail is engaging in fake news re “God”. It is certain that the Islamic headbangers in Lakemba didn’t say “God”, they said ‘Allah’.

  • Shia imam Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi did a street walk at Lakemba in Sydney
  • He was called a pig and a dog in Arabic as he visited Sydney’s Muslim heartland
  • The religious leader is outspoken against radicalisation, sharia law and violence 
  • He fears he could be shot at or stabbed next time he visited that area of Sydney 

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.’

A man in outside a shop (pictured wearing black) in Lakemba called Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi a dog and a pig in ArabicAfter only a few minutes, Sheikh Tawhidi and the 7News crew returned to an unmarked van to avoid the possibility of violence.

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.

A man on a closed Facebook page used the Arabic word for dog, kalb, to wonder why violence wasn’t inflicted on Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi

‘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.

‘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.

However, he fears something worse could happen next time.

‘If this continues, there will come a time where an average Australian will require a visa to enter those areas,’ he said.

‘I was expected to be shot at, I expected to be stabbed with a knife, it was very normal for me and I was not afraid.

‘My appearance today was a statement that I am not afraid.’

  1. This sheik is perishing in the lies & hatred of Islam!

    The Lord Jesus Christ does not want anyone to perish as can be read in:

    2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance”.

    1 John 5:14-15 says: “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him”.

    What an opportune time for the sheik to cry out to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.

    What an opportune time for Christians to pray for this man.

  2. I have to give credit to this sheik. He’s been consistently bagging Islamic behaviour in Australia. The video last night showed he puts himself in harm’s way (i.e. in the immediate presence of sunni muslim scumbags that for some reason we’re supposed to see as ‘human beings’)

    1. I think he’s sh*t scared, being a Shia in a huge population of Sunni’s is not going to look very good for his future health in this country.
