Ahmadiyya Muslim Community cleans up the records

We keep hearing in media that Muslim communities and Muslim leaders are not doing enough. On Sunday, March 5, we saw a record-breaking performance by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. They topped the nation in ‘Clean Up Australia Day’ by taking out the top four positions in both most volunteers and most funds raised. Unfortunately, not a single TV channel in NSW mentioned or showed their clip. When thousands of Muslims get together in good cause, it’s irrelevant to media, but when a single Muslim does a bad act, the whole Muslim community is blamed. I believe law abiding, peaceful Australian Muslims deserve...

It is all of our responsibility to keep Australia safe and protect all Australians. Aqeel Ibraheem, Blacktown Link:...

Australia’s Pauline Hanson is creating fear in the general public

When ignorance is mixed with confidence, it can be very dangerous. Pauline Hanson is creating fear in the general public to create division within society for her hidden agenda. The same rule is being applied by terrorists who teach young Muslims that they don’t belong in Western countries. The Australian public is smart enough to understand that if Asians have become loyal Australians since Hanson’s first anti-immigration speech in 1996, then Muslims will too. Our unity is our biggest strength because hate cannot wipe out hate — only love and education can do that. Aqeel Ibraheem, Blacktown, NSW Link:...
