Islamic leaders urge police to keep a close watch on leader of closed Al-Furqan centre
by Tom Minear
Islamic leaders have urged police to keep a close watch on a firebrand cleric who has shut down his religious centre amid outrage over its links to suspected terrorist plotters.
The Al-Furqan centre in Springvale South closed on Wednesday night, as the Herald Sun revealed its leader Harun Mehicevic's ties to teens alleged to have planned an Anzac Day attack.
"We believe that given the constant harassment, pressure and false accusations levelled against the centre — particularly by media and politicians — this is the best course of action," the centre said.
