In November 2020, several media, including Sky News, reported the dreadful act of Australian soldiers slaughtering innocent Muslims, including unarmed civilians and children from 2005 to 2016. The Muslim communities worldwide were astonished by such ruthless rampage.

Protesters grieved over the victims in the horrible massacre. They stated that the Australian government didn’t take any actions after more than 100 days since it had claimed to hold the persons involved accountable.
“We Muslims have to be united,” said the protesters, “mercy and compassion are like one body; if one organ complained, the rest of the body develops a fever.”
