Australian Muslim cleric will stop giving sermons for 3 months

Australia's most prominent Islamic cleric will not give sermons for two or three months, but will not face censure from his mosque for a sermon comparing women who do not wear head scarves to “uncovered meat," the mosque's spokesman said Friday.


The board of the Lakemba Mosque Association met late Thursday with Sheik Taj Aldin al Hilali and decided afterward to accept his apology for the comments, which triggered a storm of protest. (AP)
