A radical Islamic group that wants a global Muslim superstate has slammed moderate Muslims for distributing leaflets emphasising their love of Australia.

Ahmadiyya worshippers have been dropping the flyers into letterboxes in Hobart to counter right-wing political parties like One Nation, Reclaim Australia and the Australian Liberty Alliance, which are calling for a ban on Muslim migration.

But radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir has denounced their campaign for acceptance.

Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Uthman Badar has taken to Twitter to condemn moderate Muslims

'How much grovelling can you pack into one leaflet?,' the group's spokesman Uthman Badar posted on Facebook.

'Quite a bit apparently.'

His Facebook followers have echoed his call, with Englishman Ayaz Sharif posting: 'Where's the vomit emoji?'

Another follower Picasso Maxima questioned the Tasmanian Muslim group's assertion the Muslim faith was compatible with love of one's country.

'I don't think nation states or "countries" existed at the time of the prophet,' he said.

Hizb ut-Tahrir's campaign against the moderate Tasmanian Muslim group comes less than a week after Mr Badar fronted a rally at Lakemba, in south-west Sydney, to campaign against the conflict in Syria - on the same day Russia's ambassador to Turkey was shot dead.

More than 200 people shouted 'Allahu Akhbar' - an Islamic phrase meaning 'God is great' - as Russia mourned the death of Andrei Karlov at the hands of off-duty police officer Mevl├╝t Mert Altinta in an Ankara art gallery.



  • 'How much grovelling can you pack into one leaflet?': Radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir slams Tasmanian Muslims for promoting peace and love
  • Muslim group distributed pamphlets which emphasised their love of Australia
  • Ahmadiyya worshipers want to counter One Nation's anti-Islamic stance
  • Radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir has accused them of 'grovelling in a leaflet'
  • The pamphlets are titled 'Muslims for loyalty' and 'Muslims for peace'



The same group is now incensed at leaflets titled 'Muslims for loyalty' and 'Muslims for peace', which include quotes from Muslim leaders such as 'love of one's country of residence is part of faith' and 'love for all hatred for none'.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community's Tasmanian state president Aamir Mahmoud said the rise of right-wing, anti-immigration political parties had seen a rise in hatred towards followers of their faith.

'With the rise of One Nation and Reclaim Australia a lot of people think that Muslims have a personal agenda,' Dr Mahmoud told the ABC.

'When I came in 2010, most of the people were afraid to talk to me, to come to me.'

Dr Mahmoud said the message was being received positively but there was more to do.

'[I hope] to change the mind of people. To get very clear concept to them that if some people or a group of people or a person is doing something wrong, it should not be related to every person,' he said.

The group has previously letterboxed homes in other Australian states.
