An Islamic leader is calling for sermons in mosques to be monitored to prevent radical preaching in the wake of recent terror attacks.
Perth Imam Kamran Tahir, 26, said he was happy for cameras to be installed in his mosque to capture what was going on inside and questioned why others would be against monitoring.
'If any mosque - or anybody - says we do not want you to monitor our mosques, naturally that could raise a flag [about] why is that the case,' he told 9 News.
'If the authorities feel that there is a need to install - God forbid - cameras in our mosques then we'll be open to it.'
Mr Tahir and members of his local Muslim community were out in Perth over the weekend to show their loyalty to Australia and 'discuss any misconceptions about Islam'

His comments follow an announcement from the prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, on Friday following a meeting of the Council of Australian Governments that laws would be strengthened to create a presumption against bail and parole for people who have demonstrated support of, or links to, terrorist activity. “Violent criminals with terrorist links should not be walking the streets,” Turnbull said.
I know this is Australia. But in the US this would not be acceptable as a blanket policy and would violate our constitution on many fronts.
