Little Anthony ‘AJ’ Elfalak’s Godfather has shut down his anti-vaccine group in the wake of the toddler’s disappearance.
Alan Hashem claims his family circumstances have changed and he no longer has any inclination to push the anti-vax agenda to his 33,000 followers.
Loyal fans and followers have since turned on Mr Hashem, accusing him of abandoning supposed victims of the Covid vaccine and vulnerable Australians.
‘You were the voice for others who couldn’t speak out… now many more won’t get a chance to share their stories,’ one disappointed follower said.
‘I hope you rethink your decision as there’s many more out there.’
The sudden decision and half-hearted reasoning has sparked concerns from his conspiracy theorist followers that Mr Hashem was silenced by government officials.
Mr Hashem said he worries ‘bad things come in threes’ and cited the ‘ordeal’ that his family went through with AJ’s disappearance and his ailing parents as reasons for stepping back from the movement.
Some have wildly alleged that Mr Hashem agreed to shut the platform down in exchange for AJ’s safe return.
Three-year-old AJ, who is Mr Hashem’s nephew and Godson, disappeared from his isolated home in Putty, 150km north west of Sydney, on September 3 and was found three days later just 500m from his home.
A large-scale search and rescue party spent three days in the dense bushland searching for him before he was spotted by a PolAir chopper cupping muddy water to his face in a creek.
While experts believe his minor injuries are consistent with three nights spent in rugged terrain, Mr Hashem and members of his family initially suggested something more sinister was at play.
At the time, he indicated someone had ‘a lot of explaining to do’ and was standing firm in his belief that little AJ had been abducted.
‘How did he leave, who did he leave with? Did anything sinister happen? These are questions that need to still be answered and we will not stop until we actually find the truth,’ he said the day AJ was found.
Mr Hashem supposedly promised his followers when launching his anti-vax platform that he would ‘never give up’ the group, sparking concerns that he has been silenced against his will.
In response to the increasingly outlandish conspiracies, Mr Hashem urged his followers not to ‘read too much into it’.
‘We have raised awareness and done our bit, I need to focus on work and family commitments… I’ll share more when I can,’ he said.
‘Recently I experienced an ordeal that resulted in me needing to take time off to re-focus on family.’
Critics have called on Mr Hashem to hand over the reins to somebody who is still willing to ‘fight for freedoms,’ but he has remained firm in his decision to close the platform all together.
Several videos purporting to show victims of the Covid jab with adverse reactions have been wiped from his social media platforms.
Critical messages shared on Mr Hashem’s posts on both Facebook and Instagram have also disappeared.
The social media pages for Our Voices Matter are still active, and it is not clear if Mr Hashem is intending on removing them altogether.
‘We achieved what we set out to do, which was to raise awareness… I would like to discourage any misinformation regarding the closure of Our Voices Matter,’ he said.
The haunting image captured by a police chopper that AJ’s family says is PROOF his miracle survival after being lost in rugged bushland for three days was NO accident
A blurry image taken from a police helicopter has given Anthony ‘AJ’ Elfalak’s family all the proof they need that he was being cared for by an angel while lost in the bush.
With her three-year-old nuzzling into her neck and holding onto her tightly, Kelly Elfalak revealed she had no doubt that the ‘power of prayer’ kept AJ safe.
Little AJ was found on September 6 after three days in inhospitable terrain behind his family home in Putty, 150km northwest of Sydney, with nothing more than some scratches, ant bites and nappy rash.
His devout Coptic Orthodox Christian family believe that an angel can be seen hidden in the rocks to his left when the NSW Police helicopter zeroed in on him.
‘If you saw the picture of AJ in the creek, you can see the angel next to him,’ Ms Elfalak said.
The photo has been circulating on social media and within paranormal activity groups.
But Ms Elfalak clarified that she and her family are certain the guardian angel stayed with little AJ to keep him alive while rescuers scoured the property for any sign of life.
She says it is a ‘miracle’ that he was found safe and well, a reflection of the strength of prayer and their faith.Internet Explorer Channel Network
