After 18 years in political exile, controversial One Nation leader Pauline Hanson is set to take her place in the Senate following this weekend's Federal Election.
Known for her extreme views on Immigration, once focused on “Asian” immigration and Abpriginal land rights, these days her policies focus heavily on Islam.
Hanson has gone so far as to call for an “inquiry or Royal Commission to determine if Islam is a religion or political ideology”.
“Australia is now seeing big changes in the suburbs which are predominately Muslim,” One Nation’s policy platform states.
“Some of these suburbs include Lakemba, Auburn, Bankstown, Punchbowl and Villawood in Western Sydney. Tolerance toward other Australians or non-Muslim migrants is no longer the case. Our law courts are disrespected and prisons have become breeding grounds for extremist Muslims to radicalise inmates.”
According to the One Nation party's agenda, they are calling to ban the burqa and niqab in public as well as Halal certification, she wants to stop Muslim immigration and has made a call to install surveillance cameras in mosques, reports News Corp.
There will be “no hope for the future” if we do not make the “necessary changes now to stop the advancement of Islam in Australia”, the platform continues.
“Do you want your children and grandchildren to be living under Sharia Law and treated as a second-class citizen with no rights? We don’t!”
However Richard Di Natale, of The Greens, says he is ready to go into battle with Hanson over her “racist” views.
“We will take it right up to her, to show that in a modern Australia there is no place for racism, there is no place for bigotry, for the sort of hatred that she is spreading through her views,” reports The Courier Mail.
