Sheikh Taj El-Din Hamid “Catmeat” Hilaly is a Sydney imam who has been entertaining and exasperating the Australian public for many years. Back in 2006 he gained notoriety far beyond the shores of his adopted country when he expressed the following opinion during a Friday sermon:
If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it… whose fault is it, the cats’ or the uncovered meat? The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred.
Hence his popular nickname, “Catmeat”.
This week Catmeat has outdone himself. It seems he filed a police report about an incident of vandalism in his mosque, but it later emerged out that the sheikh himself was the vandal. Not only that, it was his own automatic security camera that caught him in the act.
