Trouble already? Photograph of women in hijabs on billboard advertising Australia Day celebrations sparks heated online debate
by Nic White
A billboard advertising Australia Day celebrations in Melbourne sparked debate online for appearing to feature two women wearing hijabs.
A picture of the huge sign showed it having an Australian flag on the left with the two smiling women on the right underneath the event details. There were no other people in the design.
It was said to be by the side of a road in Cranbourne, in Melbourne's southeast, and first shared by far-right groups on Facebook on Friday.
The debate attracted hundreds of comments with a variety of opinions, and was shared thousands of times.
