Controversial Islamic preacher in Sydney
Self-proclaimed sheikh Junaid Thorne travelled from Perth to Sydney to provide spiritual cleansing sessions, days after mocking the federal government's position on the Islamic State movement.
The 25-year-old, who in July was banned from preaching in West Australian prisons, has attracted a following since he was deported from Saudi Arabia in July 2013.
News Corp Australia has been told that Junaid developed ties to the iQraa Islamic Centre at Underwood in Brisbane's southeast, which was raided by police on Wednesday.
