In last night’s Q&A (“Would Pauline Hanson ban a young, Muslim Sam Dastyari from Australia?”, smh.com.au, July 19), Pauline Hanson repeatedly insisted that it is fundamentally the Koran that preaches the hate and killing of the infidels. As a proud Australian and an Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth, my question to Ms Hanson is: “if the Koran preaches killing the infidels, why aren’t the rest of the 1.6 billion Muslims following the teachings of the Koran?” The answer simply is that selected verses of the Koran have been taken out of context by an opportunistic few to radicalise easily manipulated, lost youths.
