'Like a script from a mafia movie': Peak Muslim body AFIC descends into turmoil
by Rachel Olding
The country's peak administrative Islamic body has descended into further turmoil in a turn of events that observers have quipped is like "a script from a mafia movie".
A group of former executive members of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, who either stepped down or were banned last year, arrived at the organisation's Zetland headquarters late at night last week with a locksmith.
Hafez Kassem, who circulated a letter of voluntary resignation last year, now claims he was only on temporary leave and has "officially resumed my duties as president".
