Deradicalisation program is pointless, says influential Muslim association
The head of one of Australia's oldest and most established Muslim organisations has criticised the federal government's deradicalisation program as "pointless" and not genuinely consultative.
Samier Dandan, the president of the Lebanese Muslim Association, has written a scathing review (pdf) of the programs.
Dandan criticised the government for hand-picking "safe" attendees for high-level consultations, which he labelled "box-ticking exercises".
