Vince Focarelli’s journey from a gang-leader to a devout Muslim

Vince Focarelli, a former leader of one of Australia’s most notorious motorcycle gangs has survived 6 attempts on his life. He was involved in a territorial rivalry with other gangs that saw his 22-year-old stepson Giovanni killed in a January 2012 shooting.

Focarelli has embraced Islam and opened a halal restaurant called La’Fig Cucina in Adelaide that feeds the homeless once a week and donates to the local Muslim community. He is the reason that too many people converted to Islam and reason to make his Muslim friends become more devout. His present name is Abdul Salam.
