Dr Michael Mohammed Ahmad, author of The Lebs, appeared on QandA on 2 August on ABC. He was railing against racism and Islamophobia, saying bigots “should be afraid of him” and “the majority of people” who will “stop the bigotry and hatred that they’re spreading”.

“I just find it really cheap when there’s a concern that Muslims are inciting violence, because if you looked at the foreign policies of the West they are the most violent people on the planet.” he said.
