  1. Please change his name when reporting on this story. I am very concerned that there might be some backlash against the Muslim community. We must show extra sensitivity to them and their religious practices.

  2. How can you publish a picture of Mohamed? I thought it’s against Shaaria law? Deport the family and no more government welfare for them. Investigate his mosque.
