Bullet and burning towers on Islamic group's 9/11 fare

The Islamic Research and Educational Academy, which regularly holds dawah stalls in the city on weekends, intends to have tables outside the Victorian State Library and on the corner of Bourke and Swanston Streets to combat "Islamophobia".
On its Facebook page, IREA states that it takes the opportunity every year "on this dreadful day of 9/11 in our history to educate the masses about ISLAM and show them the true beauty of ISLAM".
"Since this day in 2001, we have been blamed and labelled for, that which ISLAM opposes and condemns namely TERRORISM," it says.
"We call out for all our Brothers and Sisters to join us in our effort to clear the distorted image of ISLAM and fulfil the obligation of doing DAWAH."

IREA did not respond to requests for comment.
According to the IREA website, founder and director Waseem Rasvi is in Kuwait on an international lecture tour, during which he is being sponsored by the Kuwaiti government to speak about "dawah strategy".
Earlier this year, IREA was forced to cancel a public "inter-faith" event at the University of Melbourne, after it insisted on being allowed to enforce gender segregation among audience members.
