In the wake of a spate of terrorist attacks, Dr Ameer Ali from Murdoch University’s School of Business and Governance, has called for a mass Muslim demonstration of outrage against extremism.

Writing in the West Australian, Dr Ali said such protests would demonstrate to Islamists and the outside world that indiscriminate killings and carnage unleashed by suicide bombings are abhorrent and barbaric.

“It should show that the international Muslim community is in partnership with non-Muslims not only in condemning this barbaric strategy but also in identifying the culprits and their organisations,” writes Dr Ali.

He said the mass movement should originate from the prestigious centres of Sunni and Shia Islam, such as the holy cities of Mecca  and Medina, and from intellectual centres such as the Al-Azhar in Egypt.
