It’s simply not true that Fahim Awang, just deported from India, is an ISIS supporter:

Family friend and President of the WA Muslim Theological Council, Sheikh Faizel Gaffoor, told Radio 6PR that Mr Awang had been “stupid” to repost an earlier Facebook photograph of himself, stripped to the waist, brandishing an AK-47 in front of Muslim literature.

“I don’t blame Indian authorities, they had to do what they thought was right,” he said.

“But context is important, this [posing with a weapon] is something Mr Awang did six to eight years ago. He was charged with weapons offences at the time and dealt with. The past should be the past.”

Yep, he’s “just a normal, young Australian” with a history of firearms offences.
