A VOCAL critic of Islam who has called for the closure of Muslim schools in Australia has found an unlikely supporter.
Australian Muslim leader Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi has backed Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s demand that Islamic schools should be closed for security reasons.
Imam Tawhidi is now reportedly in hiding after he told 7 News: “These schools do exist, they are a problem and they need to be either shut down or changed completely.”
The surprising comments came after Ms Ali sparked anger from Muslim groups when she compared them to white supremacists.
The US-based, Somali-born activist cancelled a trip to Australia at the last minute, citing safety concerns over the organisation of her trip.
While in Australia, Ms Ali had planned to highlight the need for Western countries to educate themselves about dawa, or how radical Islamists spread their ideology.
She told AAP while the West should continue its military battles against terrorists, it needed to focus on the spread of Islamic ideology through schools, mosques and non-government organisations that, on the surface, appear nonviolent but ultimately act as a “conveyor belt” for violence.

A delicate operation for sure, realistically there would need to be more people like this woman speaking out, they need to police their own as such and expose the radicals.

If he's not murdered in an honor killing then he will probably get suicided real soon.
I wish there were more brave moderate muslims like this man that were willing to speak up about the volatility of their community.
