Islamic Development Organisation: Auditors revoke Islamic fund's charity status
by Natasha Bita
An Islamic orphans' fund was stripped of charity status as auditors comb the accounts of Australia's peak Muslim group.
The Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC) has booted the Islamic Development Organisation, known as I-DO, off its official register so it can no longer claim tax breaks.
The ACNC will also audit the powerful Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) — which controls six Muslim schools and administers the lucrative halal certification scheme for Islam-approved food.
