Pauline Hanson Calling for ban on Burqa, Appalling Burqa Stunt by her - Movingtrend
The Guardian - Thursday August 17, 2017
Pauline Hanson the leader of the right-wing One nation Party wore the burqa into the Senate Chamber at Parliament house Canberra for the daily questioning time session on Thursday. Australian attorney general George Brandis attacks Pauline Hanson's shocking burqa stunt.
Upon the 'burqa stunt' of the Pauline Hanson, George Brandis took sharp notice of it and issued a warning that the action is offensive to the "religious sensibilities of other Australians."
He said vividly that "No, we are not banning the burqa."
Brandis in a video shared on The Guardian said:"Senator Hanson, I’m not going to pretend to ignore the stunt that you have tried to pull today by arriving in the chamber dressed in a burqa when we all know you are not an adherent of the Islamic faith."
"To ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its religious garments, is an appalling thing to do, and I would ask you to reflect on your behaviour."
Brandis was cited as saying, "We have about half a million Australians in this country of the Islamic faith, and the vast majority of them are law abiding, good Australians, and Senator Hanson, it [burqa] is absolutely consistent with being a good law abiding Australian and a strict, adherent, Muslim."
During the questioning time, Pauline Hanson asked the question to attorney general if the government would work to ban the burqa "in light of [the country's] national security".
Hanson said she was speaking on the behalf of the Austrailian people and that "Terrorism is a true threat to our country."
Hanson left the Chamber posing the question to the Attorney General.
In 2015 Hanson's called for a ban on the burqa and defended the reclaim Austrailia rallies.
