Australia Islam News & Commentary State

WATCH: Muslim Labor MP Anne Aly criticises the Prime Minister for “pointing fingers at radical Islam,” says there are “bigger threats than religious terror.”

Muslim Labor MP Anne Aly has criticised Scott Morrison for his response to the recent Islamic terrorist attack in Melbourne saying, the Prime Minister “needs a little terrorism 101 before pointing fingers at radical Islam.”

The comments were made after the Prime Minister rightly called on Muslim leaders to take “special responsibility” for stamping out radicalism in their communities.

“I am the first to protect religious freedom in this country, but it also means I must be the first to call out religious extremism,” the Prime Minister said.

“Religious extremism takes many forms around the world, and no religion is immune from it… But here in Australia, we would be kidding ourselves if we did not call out the fact that the greatest threat of religious extremism… is the radical and dangerous ideology of extremist Islam.”

Anne Aly told Sky News: “I think the Prime Minister needs to do a little terrorism 101 before pointing fingers at radical Islam. Yes, violent Jihadism has been a predominant aspect of religious terror but the biggest threat in Australia is domestic violence.”
