In this short clip of a Ramadan dinner in Australia, the Grand Mufti seems to indicate that jihad is a laughing matter, and that the Muslim community should no longer have to condemn each attack.
Australia's Muslim Grand Mufti asked dinner guests in Melbourne "to make jihad" for him in an odd joke less than a week after a terror attack in the city.
Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed joked in Arabic about holy war at an Iftar dinner to commemorate the holy Islamic month of Ramadan, and complained about how Muslims are constantly called upon to condemn terrorism.
His English translator, Adel Salman, explained the Grand Mufti's humour at the Sunday night charity event, in inner-city Brunswick, organised by the Islamic Council of Victoria.
"He did make a joke at the expense of all of us and he asked you all to make jihad," he said.
