Australian judge urges Muslims to disavow “violent verses of Quran”

An Australian judge has called on the country’s Muslims to publicly disavow “violent verses of the Quran that have inspired acts of terrorism.”

Justice Desmond Fagan said hostile verses in the Quran that support “intolerance, violence and domination” need to be denounced by the broader Islam community or they will “embolden terrorists to think they are in common cause with all believers.”

He made the comments while handing down sentences to husband and wife duo Sameh Bayda and Alo-Bridget Namoa who were jailed over planning a New Year’s Eve terrorist attack on Sydney.

But Islamic Friendship Association of Australia founder Keysar Trad said he would be “very surprised” if the people Justice Fagan referred to have read the Quran in its entirety. “Unfortunately what we have in Australia from time to time, we get people who are ignorant of the religion, they hear a word here or there and want justification for their own behavior,” Mt Trad said.
