After the Friday prayers, a sense of shock and disappointment swept through the congregation when it became apparent that Australia's Prime Minister, Anthony Albanesi, had made an appearance at the gathering. Rather than offering condolences or showing respect for the deceased grand mufti, his presence seemed geared towards promoting a political agenda, specifically encouraging worshippers to vote "yes".

This lack of acknowledgment for the passing of Sheikh Taj El Din Hilaly and the apparent intrusion of political motives into a religious gathering left many members of the Muslim community deeply disheartened and offended. They felt that the sanctity of their religious space had been violated, and the memory of their esteemed leader had been disrespected.

In the wake of this incident, there has been a growing call for accountability within the Muslim community. Many are demanding that leaders from organizations like the LMA (Lebanese Muslim Association) and UMA (United Muslim Association) step down from their positions. This call for resignation stems from the belief that these leaders failed to safeguard the dignity and sanctity of their religious events, allowing political interests to disrupt what should have been a moment of mourning and reflection.
