A kind reader has pointed out that the Australian Royal Commission on Child Abuse, which arrogated to itself the role of advising the Catholic Church to change the rules of the confessional and to abandon clerical celibacy, made no recommendations to the Muslim community. As a matter of fact it took no evidence from Muslims whatsoever.

Readers will ask themselves why that should be, considering that Muslims are the second largest religious grouping in Australia. Surely, on purely statistical grounds, the Commission might have suspected some events worth investigating among Australia’s 604,200 Muslims.
