Navy's Islamic Twitter account shut down after anti-Islam group complains
The official Twitter account of the Australian navy's adviser on Muslim affairs was shut down within days of an official complaint by an anti-Islam group about its content, Guardian Australia can reveal.
Captain Mona Shindy, the chief of navy's strategy adviser on Islamic affairs, had been active on the @navyislamic account until it was deleted around 22 December.
Shindy, who also heads the Guided Missile Frigate System program office, had angered rightwing activists with her tweets, including one on 22 October describing the newly launched Australian Liberty Alliance (ALA) as an "extreme, ill-informed fringe group".
