No place for hate

As a proud Australian and member of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth from Blacktown, NSW, I’m relieved to find out that a Pakistani religious scholar has been shown the door to leave Australia. Australia is not a place to spread hate in the name of free speech. I understand that it is difficult to check all statements of religious scholars from past years but all Muslims must report any hate preachers to the authorities. It is all of our responsibility to keep Australia safe and protect all Australians. Aqeel Ibraheem, Blacktown Link:...

Spreading truth of Islam

IT is not surprising to know that half of the Australian population would like to ban Muslim migration. We live in a world today that is very much influenced by media coverage. We base our opinions on what we are shown. The media is constantly putting Islam down, and instead of showing the good things of this faith, the media only shows the bad: the terror, the horror. It is unfortunate that radical Muslims and terrorists get more coverage in the media than those hundreds of millions of Muslim men and women who serve humanity as doctors, scientists, charity...

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:...

Hanson on wrong side of history, again

As an Australian Muslim, I was appalled by Pauline Hanson’s maiden speech in Parliament. She is creating dangerous divisions in society along religious and cultural lines. She is ill-informed about Islam as she warned Australians that we “would be living under Sharia law” if Australia did not act to ban Muslim immigration. However, she fails to understand that Islam itself teaches Muslims to obey the authority. Khizar Rana Walkerville SA Link:...

We want to work together to end extremism

As a Muslim, I am saddened to hear that Ms Sonia Kruger, a well-respected television host, has called for a ban on Muslim immigration. She made her ill-informed opinion after reading Andrew Bolt’s commentary linking immigration policies to terrorism. I am surprised that Ms Kruger chose to blindly accept Mr Bolt’s comments that were biased and false. I would like to point out to Ms Kruger that banning Muslims from entering a country is not the solution to end extremism. Banning Islamic practices is not the solution either. I belong to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a sect that is...
