‘It is disappointing that such language was used so casually’: Muslim group complains to the Federal Police for using ‘Islamic-inspired terrorism’ to describe Sydney plane bomb plot
The utter brazen gall is what’s amazing.
A Muslim group has complained to the Australian Federal Police for using the term ‘Islamic-inspired terrorism’ to describe an alleged plot to bomb a passenger plane.
AFP Commissioner Andrew Colvin used the phrase late last month when asked by a journalist if the four men arrested across Sydney were connected with ISIS.
‘We do believe it’s Islamic inspired terrorism,’ he told reporters as he stood next to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Three of the four men arrested during the raids have since been charged.
