Muslim leaders urged to boycott Eid dinners held by AFP in 2015
by Natalie O'Brien
Muslim community members are urging their leaders, imams and representatives to boycott Ramadan dinners being held this year by the Australian Federal Police.
A group called Concerned Muslims Australia has started a petition on change.org and encouraged all Muslims to stay away from the annual events in Sydney and Melbourne this month.
In the petition, the organisers say: "We refuse to be treated like a national security threat and call on you to recognise such events as attempts by the government to paint a false picture of co-operation between it and the community. We thus call upon you to take the only action befitting as a response, and to refuse in principle to sit with the government while it continues to treat Muslims in the most underhanded way possible."
