Australian Muslims in trauma over politics of 'war on terror', forum hears
Australian Muslims are living in trauma because they had been singled out for political purposes, a leading Islamic leader said on Sunday.
The president of the Islamic Council of Victoria, Ghaith Krayem, told an anti-racism forum in Melbourne that the federal government's plans to allow the immigration minister to revoke the citizenship of dual nationals found to join or support terrorist groups "would make criminals of people based on suspicion and suspicion alone".
He said it was clearly aimed at Muslims, as two people fighting with Kurds against Islamic State had returned to Australia without charge.
