Anti-halal campaigner sued over claims Islamic certification supports terrorism
A prominent anti-halal campaigner and the "Islam-critical" Q Society are being sued for defamation over their claims the Islamic certification industry is corrupt and funds "the push for sharia law in Australia".
Mohammed El-Mouelhy, the head of one of Australia's largest certifiers, Halal Certification Authority, began proceedings in the New South Wales supreme court last month against senior members of the Melbourne-based Q Society and Kirralie Smith, who runs the website HalalChoices.
The statement of claim alleges that two videos featuring Smith, one recorded at a Q Society event, portray El-Mouelhy as "part of a conspiracy to destroy Western civilisation from within" and "reasonably suspected of providing financial support to terrorist organisations".
