Anti-mosque flyer did not breach laws
by Lisa Cox and Hamish Boland-Rudder
A controversial anti-mosque flyer distributed in Gungahlin has probably not breached the ACT's Discrimination Act, but has prompted the Human Rights Commissioner to again call for stronger anti-discrimination laws in the territory in a report on the matter released yesterday.
The flyer, distributed in Gungahlin by a group calling themselves the Concerned Citizens of Canberra, urged residents to oppose the construction of a mosque on The Valley Avenue because of its "social impact" on the "Australian neighbours" in the northern Canberra region.
The flyer also raised concerns about traffic and noise, "public interest" and the proposed size of the development.
