Canberra's Muslims respond to Pauline Hanson's election
by Stephen Jeffery
The leaders of Canberra's Islamic communities say the best way to counter Pauline Hanson's statements about Muslims is to continue promoting peace and tolerance.
One Nation's policies include calling for a royal commission or inquiry into whether Islam is a religion or political ideology, stopping Muslim immigrants and refugees from entering the country, surveillance cameras in all mosques and Islamic schools, and banning the burqa, niqab and halal certification.
At a media conference on Monday, Ms Hanson asked reporters if they wanted to see "terrorism on our streets" or "our Australians murdered".
