The sons who ‘want mum dead’ after she left Islam

By Reid Butler • A Current Affair Reporter  

A Melbourne woman who told how she felt like an “animal” and a “slave” while practising Islam says she hopes she’ll inspire other female Muslims to “free themselves” from the religion.

Nadia (last name with held) and her eldest daughter Allawea are now in hiding, after their family turned against them when the pair denounced Islam.

“It is in an honour for them to kill somebody whose turned away from Islam, and their own mother has turned away from Islam so I mean nothing to them,” the 40-year-old told A Current Affair.

Things escalated in October last year, when Nadia’s two eldest sons turned up at her former home in Melbourne’s western suburbs, brutally bashing her new husband.

“They were screaming we’re going to kill you, we need you dead,” she told ACA.

The young men fled when police arrived, with officers later allegedly finding several rifles in their possession.

Nadia says her sons treated her like an "animal" and "second class citizen" after she denounced Islam.

Nadia and her teenage daughter are now living in a safe house, provided by a domestic violence charity.

The 40-year-old, originally from Bendigo, met her ex-husband when she was in her late teens. She fell head over heels and converted to Islam but “struggled to do daily prayers, daily washing” and “read the Koran”.

Her daughter Allewea said she was terrified of her brothers. Picture: ACAHer daughter Allewea said she was terrified of her brothers. Picture: ACANadia and Allewea are now in hiding from their family. Picture: ACANadia and Allewea are now in hiding from their family. Picture: ACA

“I watched my children giving me their seconds off their plate … and that was okay because I was western and white, and not Muslim,” she said.

She claims she denounced the faith after growing concerned about growing anti-western sentiment in the family and discovering her ex-husband had been seeing other women – a move that ultimately led to the October incident.

“Maybe after today, there will be some women who will say ‘hey I am human, I’m not an animal’ and maybe they will get the chance to be free,” she said.

Army chaplains to remove ‘conquer’ from 102-year-old motto because it is offensive to Muslims

In this sign ConquorI have included this in the section Sharia-Apostacy because Apostacy is not just about Mulims leaving the faith. It includes anyone who questions or speaks out against or mocks or offends a Muslim.  One translation of the sacred text is “making mischief”. Any one making mischief against a Muslim is guilty of Apostacy – punishable by death.

Qur’an

Mischief-makers should be murdered, crucified, or dismembered

33. The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement, Qur’an 5:32

THE Australian Army is removing the motto “In this sign conquer” from the 102-year-old hat badges of army chaplains because it is offensive to Muslims.

The move comes after an imam approved by the Grand Mufti was appointed to join the ­Religious Advisory Committee to the Services in June.

Australian Army chaplains have had the motto on their hat badges since 1913.

A Defence spokeswoman last night denied the motto was being changed because it was associated with the Crusades, when Christian armies fought Muslims in the Holy Land during the Middle Ages.

“The motto of the Australian Army Chaplains is being changed to better reflect the diversity of religion throughout the Australian Army,” she said.

“The new wording on the Australian Army Chaplaincy badge is under consideration and no decision has been made at this time.”

Former army major Bernard Gaynor, whose commission was terminated last year due to his outspoken views, said: “This is political correctness destroying our military heritage.”

The army imam, Sheik Mohamadu Nawas Saleem, has previously called for sharia law to be introduced into Australia. He signed a petition supporting radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir, which has argued in favour of honour killings and said Muslim students should not be forced to honour Anzac Day.

Sheik Saleem works about 40 days a year for the Army and is paid $717 for each one: almost $30,000 a year.

Sheik Saleem was supported for the role by Grand Mufti Ibrahim Abu Mohammed, who this week sparked controversy by failing to come straight out and condemn the Paris terror attacks.

The Defence spokeswoman said: “There are 102 ADF permanent members who self-identify as Muslim. In addition there are 40 Active Reservists who have declared as Muslim.’’

 

The announcment caused outrage

Former army major Bernard Gaynor, who is standing as the Australian Liberty Alliance senate candidate in Queensland reaffirmed his position that is was “political correctness destroying our military heritage”

“The Australian Army is changing a hat badge to soothe Islamic sensibilities. That’s foolish appeasement.” he tweeted.

Christian Democrat Party head Fred Nile also took to social media to express his outrage.

“The proposed changes to our Army chaplains motto is outrageous. #JoinCDP to put an end to this politically correct nonsense” he tweeted.

Meanwhile readers flooded the Daily Telegraph website with comments on the controversial move.

More than 700 people have commented on the story on the Daily Telegraph website and more than 1100 have responded to a post on Facebook.

The majority deride the move as political correctness gone wrong.

“Why not give Muslim chaplains their own cap badge as has been done for Jewish chaplains, so each faith has their own insignia?” Gray commented,

“A simple, common sense solution that respects everyone and does not require anyone to sacrifice their heritage.

Peter wrote: “This is Australia! This is our country! These words are from a generation that fought for the freedoms that we enjoy here in Oz. Part of our heritage, Australian Heritage!”

Others called for heads to roll.

“This is seriously concerning.” Brando commented. “I would love to know who actually made this final decision to remove the word. They should both be ashamed of themselves.”

British soldier Lee Rigby was murdered and beheaded on a London street

Although David delivers this with tongue in cheek it is a very poignant.

Jihad Returns to London: A Reply to Prime Minister David Cameron

British soldier Lee Rigby was murdered and beheaded on a London street by two Muslims. Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson have assured the world that the attack had nothing to do with Islam. Yet the Qur’an clearly states that the penalty for “making mischief” in a Muslim land is death (5:33), and Rigby had served a tour in Afghanistan and was actively recruiting more soldiers for the British Army. How can Western leaders deny the obvious?
