Islamic Council defends planned Muslim peace conference
by John Masanauskas
Victoria's peak Islamic body has defended a controversial Muslim conference to be held in Melbourne this weekend.
The Islamic Council of Victoria is disappointed with the reaction of politicians and other commentators to the Australian Islamic Peace Conference to be staged at Melbourne Showgrounds.
Last week, state Multicultural Affairs Minister Nick Kotsiras warned organisers they could face prosecution if racial and religious vilification laws were broken.
