NSW Premier Mike Baird meets with Muslim leaders on radicalisation

NSW politicians, police and Muslim community leaders have met to discuss radicalisation following the fatal shooting of a police employee this month.

NSW Premier Mike Baird and Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione today met with a dozen Muslim leaders to determine strategies to prevent youth radicalisation.

The meeting comes in the wake of 15 year old Farhad Jabar Khalil Mohammad shooting 17 year police force veteran Curtis Cheng at close range.


The fatal incident occurred in Parramatta last week, with Farhad’s actions since having been declared politically motivated and linked to terrorism.

Islamic leaders in Sydney have since stated that they will help efforts to deal with radicalisation in the state.

The Premier said the meeting ended with a firm resolution to tackle the issue by all parties.
