Sheikh says family of teen shot dead are devastated but that many youths lose their way, not only Muslims.
Sheikh Abu Ayyman said it wasn’t just the Muslim community losing young people to crime.
“I don’t say Muslim community, I say all Australians are losing their kids to drugs, to crimes, whatever you name it. It’s not only the Muslim community,” he said.
“It’s not a different crime to other crimes, all of it is a crime. Any criminal should be dealt with in the proper way… but to make it only a Muslim community problem is unacceptable on every scale.”
Sheikh Abu Ayyman said the Muslim community was saddened by what had occurred, but has been left “full of questions without answers.”
