Freedom Commissioner Tim Wilson backs visit of anti-Islamic politician Geert Wilders
by James Massola and Rachel Olding
The federal government's "Freedom Commissioner", Tim Wilson has backed the decision to grant Dutch anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders a visa to visit Australia.
But Treasurer Scott Morrison says the controversial MP - like anyone who visits Australia - should not "import the debates from overseas" and should treat all Australians with respect.
And Muslim community advocate Rebecca Kay said sections of the Muslim community viewed Mr Wilders as a "hate preacher" and the decision to grant him a visa will damage the governments' de-radicalisation efforts.
