Scott Morrison has said the Muslim community in Australia must be more “proactive” in tackling the threat of terror attacks because “in many cases” imams and community leaders will know who is infiltrating and radicalising members of their flock.

Morrison said that community engagement was “the only way” law enforcement authorities could stop attacks such as the one in Bourke Street, Melbourne on Friday in which Hassan Khalif Shire Ali killed one person and injured two others.

In a round of interviews on Monday the prime minister identified the “vile presence” of radical Islam as the cause of the attack, dismissing the suggestion that mental health issues negated that primary cause as a “lame excuse”.
