We, the undersigned Australian Muslims, reject comments made by Sheikh Taj El Din Hilaly.
We consider that these comments are offensive to all Australians and are not representative of the views of Australian Muslims.
We call upon the Australian media to desist in referring to Sheikh Hilaly as the leader of Australian Muslims.
We call upon the Australian National Imams Council to remove Sheikh Hilaly from office and to relinquish him of the title of Mufti of Australia.
