New Zealand media covered the actions of dodgy, misogynist and antisemitic Muslim cleric Shaykh Dr Mohammed Anwar Sahib, but no one delivers a media kicking like the Daily Mail.
A Muslim cleric has been stood down for his anti-semaitic speeches as another cleric refuses to speak to a reporter because she’s a woman.
Auckland sheikh, Mohammad Anwar Sahib, is currently under investigation by the Human Rights Commission for sermons during which he claims ‘Jews are enemies and want to rule the world’.
Sahib also made claims that women are under their husbands’ rule and should not leave their homes without their permission, reported TVNZ.
Reporter, Yvonne Tahana, attempted to enter the mosque in Manukau in south Auckland to request an interview, but she was turned away due to her gender by a cleric who told her it was ‘because it’s Islamic law’.
The journalist’s male colleague was instead offered to conduct the interview.
Sahib was stood down by the Federation of Islamic Associations on Thursday where he worked as secretary of the association’s religious advisory board.
‘FIANZ condemns and rejects any form of anti-Semitic and hate speech,’ federation president Hazim Arafeh said in a statement.
‘In addition, FIANZ will not tolerate any derogatory comments and speeches made about women.’
But FIANZ did tolerate his behaviour initially. Their first press release made excuses without even naming him, and blamed the victims of his abuse.
If Shaykh Dr Mohammed Anwar Sahib was prepared to say these things publicly then what is he saying in private?
He is still in charge of his mosque, he is still delivering these hate-filled sermons demonising Jews and subjugating women…and yet the left wing remains silent.
