The leader of a reclusive Muslim sect has claimed his violent enemies planted severed pig heads at the gates to his ‘religious site’ after he made headlines for refusing to abide by Australian construction laws.
Daily Mail (h/t Sara) Dr Mustapha Kara-Ali became embroiled in a bitter feud with Hawkesbury Council after it launched civil action against him and his brother Diaa Kara-Ali for carrying out illegal land clearing and earthworks.
The council alleged the men built fences, driveways and structures at their religious retreat in Colo, north of Sydney, without approval.
Dr Kara-Ali told Tuesday’s A Current Affair his position within a religious charity granted him immunity to compliance to council laws. ‘The council should understand that they are inciting religiously motivated violence against us,’ he told the program.
