Excerpt:

Muslim community members are urging their leaders, imams and representatives to boycott Ramadan dinners being held this year by the Australian Federal Police.

A group called Concerned Muslims Australia has started a petition on change.org and encouraged all Muslims to stay away from the annual events in Sydney and Melbourne this month.

In the petition, the organisers say: "We refuse to be treated like a national security threat and call on you to recognise such events as attempts by the government to paint a false picture of co-operation between it and the community. We thus call upon you to take the only action befitting as a response, and to refuse in principle to sit with the government while it continues to treat Muslims in the most underhanded way possible."
