Cancel Geert Wilders' visa like you cancelled Chris Brown, Muslim leader tells Malcolm Turnbull
by James Massola
Muslim leaders have pressed Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to cancel the visa of Dutch anti-Islamic MP Geert Wilders during a meeting with seven Islamic community leaders on curbing violent extremism.
Lebanese Muslim Association president Samier Dandan told Fairfax Media that he had warned the Prime Minister, during a high-level meeting on Friday, that Mr Wilders' visit would fan the flames of anti-Islamic sentiment at a time when the federal and state governments were reaching out to the Muslim community and stressing need for all Australians to work together to combat violent extremism.
Mr Dandan said that if an Australian visa for US R&B singer Chris Brown could be blocked because of his history of domestic violence then Mr Wilders' visa could also be blocked.
