On 23rd January 2010, The Telegraph ran a slanderous article on Yahya Ibrahim, a well known Islamic Chaplain in Australia and respected lecturer for weekend educational courses. This Canadian-raised Egyptian Ustadh and Hafiz of the Qur’an has now received formal recognition of this slander and a settlement following its challenge. On 24th July, The Telegraph published a short retraction apologising for and correcting their false allegation of anti-Semitism, Islamism and the advocation of violence.
Ustadh Yahya Ibrahim, whose lectures are filled with calls for Interfaith Tolerance, Non-Judgement of others and the importance of respect for women, should be congratulated on his pursuit of Justice. Recent articles, such as ‘Love Jesus/Isa – son of Mary’ can be found at www.muslimmatters.org
