PM regrets controversial dinner guest

The Prime Minister regrets inviting a radical Muslim cleric, Sheikh Shady Al-Suleiman, to a Ramadan dinner at Kirribilli House.

Malcolm Turnbull is the first Australian Prime Minister to host an iftar, the meal that breaks a day of fasting during Ramadan.

TV host and social commentator Waleed Aly and AFL footballer Bachar Houli, and multi-faith and young leaders were among the Prime Minister’s guests.

Gary Adshead has questioned how the Sheikh could be included on such a guest list, when a simple Google search reveals the Clerics radical and anti-gay views.
