Australian Muslims may resort to violence if headscarf laws not changed, SA imam says
The founder of the fledgling Islamic Association of South Australia (IASA) has warned a lack of tolerance could spark violence, after a man who allegedly grabbed a woman's headscarf was released on bail.
The imam of IASA, who goes by the name Shaikh M Tawhidi, today released a statement saying he feared a day "where the Muslim community might take matters into their own hands to protect their women and mothers".
SA Police today arrested and charged a 27-year-old man from Kilburn in Adelaide's inner-north with assault and offensive behaviour on a passenger vehicle.
