Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar would regularly skip school to pray at the Parramatta Mosque, less than 1km from the NSW Police State Crime Command building where he executed 58-year-old accountant Curtis Cheng on Friday afternoon.
Detectives searched the mosque on Saturday night after reports Jabar had been seen there before his attack, only hours after imams leading the day’s service included one associated with the controversial political group Hizb-ut-Tahrir.
Hizb-ut-Tahrir officials yesterday refused to condemn Friday’s killing during a public protest against the involvement of Western governments in the Middle East. Like Islamic State, the organisation believes in the establishment of a “caliphate” or autonomous Muslim state and has been declared a terrorist organisation by other countries, although it does not endorse violence publicly.
One of the speakers at the rally, Hamzah Qureshi, said Hizb-ut-Tahrir would “stand with the Muslims of Syria. The day is not far where we will witness a world where our children and our grandchildren will once again see the light of Islam as the world saw for centuries before,” he told the protest.
Mosque denies NSW shooting link

'We don't know the boy, or where he lived because he's not a regular person in the congregation,' Neil El-Kadomi told the ABC's 7.30 program. Radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir has also denied links to the teenage killer.
The 7.30 program reported on Monday that it's believed a small group of men at Parramatta Mosque encouraged the 15-year-old to attack. The teen reportedly attended a lecture by the group at Parramatta Mosque on Friday, shortly before gunning down veteran police accountant Curtis Cheng, 58, as he left work at the Parramatta police headquarters.
Mr El-Kadomi said if anybody was suspected of using the mosque to radicalise others, he would tell police immediately. 'I don't hesitate,' he said. 'Going to the police straight away better than to be sorry later.'
The notorious Muslim extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir says claims that the teen was affiliated with the group are 'groundless and absurd'. 'Hizb ut-Tahrir's position on the use of violence as a means for political change or expressing political grievance is also extremely well known,' the group told AAP on Monday. 'Actions like the Parramatta shooting are plainly wrong.'
