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.

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...
