Islam is an evil faith that could be banned in Australia, Senator Hanson says

One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson called Islam an “evil faith” replying to Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews comments who said that the terrorist plans of attacks in Melbourne were evil, but they were not motivated by faith. She also said that Islam worries her “greatly”.

“I am sorry it is an evil faith. You put the two together because that what it is”, Senator Hanson said on Tuesday during an interview with Miranda Devine.

Senator Hanson quoted the Koran’s foreword that compares the Book to a constitution that everyone must be obliged: “No person can afford to be ignorant of the Koran for it is the constitution revealed by Allah to regulate and govern human life.”

“People say that this is religion of peace. It is not. It is religion of control and submission”, she emphasized.

The One Nation leader suggested that Senate should call for an Inquiry to make an authoritative verdict. If an Inquiry will be able to prove that a contemporary form of Islam is an ideology then it will contravene the Australian Constitution. It will allow the government under 116 section of the Australian Constitution to introduce the legislation regulating or, as Senator Hanson is planning, even to ban the ideology.

“I think that for the future well-being of this country I think that we need to follow through that”, Senator Henson stated. “A lot of people are concerned about it. The government is in fear to do anything about it”, she explained.

Senator Pauline Hanson asserted in an interview that she became concerned about security in Australia after her first national security briefing in Parliament.

“They have admitted that there is a problem in the country with terrorist threats, and protecting Australia”, Senator Hanson informed.

Ms. Hanson revealed her strategy to ban Islam in Australia if it can be determined it is a political ideology.

“We need to determine whether Islam really is a religion or it is a political ideology”, Senator Hanson stated in an interview. She emphasized that many experts are becoming convinced that Islam is an ideology.


What ASIO and the authorities are doing now is a great job. And I got to say that. But they are stretched to the limit. Absolutely.

When asked whether she would consider the US President-elect Donald Trump’s idea of extreme vetting of the Muslims refugees coming to Australia, she said: “of course”.

“I know people that they are in fear of going to shopping centre or train station now. They are in fear. I feel sorry for them and I hear them”, Senator Hanson stated.

She added that the government ignores her concerns.

“It is like shutters go down. They are not interested. I can’t seem to get through the barrier”, she said.

“They themselves have admitted that there is a problem in the country with terrorist threats, and protecting Australia. If they know that what makes me mad is why is the government and Peter Dutton so hell bent on bringing those refuges from Syria?” (Senator Hanson’s comment on national security briefing in Parliament)

An excerpt of the interview with Senator Pauline Hanson by Miranda Devine

 

 

From my perspective the biggest issue you are speaking about is Islam. We had just terror plot exposed in Melbourne thanks to a tip from ASIO… We have been very lucky in Australia so far as the majority of terror plots have been foiled before they’ve taken place with an exception of Lindt café siege and a couple of other shootings. What do you think needs to be done to make sure that terror plot doesn’t happen in the future?

 

Pauline Hanson: What ASIO and the authorities are doing now is a great job. And I got to say that. But they are stretched to the limit. Absolutely. I know that for a fact from the day we were elected. I went down to Parliament and we were given a briefing on how serious it is here in Australia. We can’t keep going the way we keep going. (…)

Put the brakes on allowing Muslims into the country especially from those very staunch Muslim countries, really hardline Muslim countries. We need to actually ban the burqa as many other countries around the world are doing. People, and it has been proven in Belgium, Tunisia, Egypt, Spain, Italy and other countries that by the banning burqa, people must assimilate and they tend to assimilate far better. I would like to know where are all the feminists? Why they are not screaming from rooftops? We don’t hear from them and we have women who are covered from head to toe, and hands covered and everything. That is not how we treat women in this country! I think it is ridiculous, and yet we don’t have a politician to speak out against it. We don’t have feminists to speak out against it. It is not a religious requirement. That makes it so stupid about the whole thing. It is not a religious requirement, to wear a burqa or niqab.

Pauline when you had the security briefing when you started at Canberra, what was so alarming about it? What did they tell you that it made you really concerned about the country?

They themselves have admitted that there is a problem in the country with terrorist threats, and protecting Australia. If they know that what makes me mad is why is the government and Peter Dutton so hell bent on bringing those refugees from Syria? We know that they have been plans to put in refugees and that is why they have been put in France and other countries.

We know that. Why we have to risk it? You’ve got Jordan, you’ve got Saudi Arabia and other countries, Muslim countries that won’t take refugees. Why are we taking these people? It would be far better if we want to look at human rights. (…) send money over there, to their countries. It will be a lot cheaper for us because every refugee we are bringing into the country costs us 573 thousand dollars. We can’t afford that and I am very concerned about the people we are bringing as it have been the case with some of these that are refugees in this country that have turned out to be terrorists.

So would you agree with Donald Trump method of, what he called, extreme vetting as well as temporary ban on Muslim immigration?

Of course, I have always called for that anyway. We can’t risk it, all right? I don’t want to see one more Australian dying. I know people that are in fear of going to shopping centre or train station now. They are in fear. I feel sorry for them and I hear them. I have spoken to a taxi driver. He said I was born Muslim. He said I am now married with a child. He said I am no longer Muslim. My uncle is telling my father he must murder me because I am no longer Muslim. So they are under threat themselves for their own life. He is no longer wishing to be a Muslim.

  • YOU MAY BE ALSO INTERESTED IN

What does the government say to you when you bring up this topic?

It is like shutters go down. They are not interested. I can’t seem to get through the barrier. If you look at Daniel Andrews comment: this is evil, but it is not a faith. I am sorry it is an evil faith. You put the two together because that what it is.

(…)

Pauline Hanson: (…) Let me just read something from the foreword in the Koran. It says: “no person can afford to be ignorant of the Koran for it is the constitution revealed by Allah to regulate and govern human life.” So Islam really means submission. It is quite interesting if you read some of the passages and people say that this is a religion of peace. It is not. It is a religion of control and submission. Islam worries me greatly. Unless we are in [inaudible] calling for a Senate Inquiry on definition of Islam. That we need to determine whether Islam really is a religion or it is a political ideology.  A lot of people are saying now that it is. Once we determine that, they will not be protected under the section 116 of the Australian Constitution. I think that for the future well being of this country I think that we need to follow through that. So a lot of people are concerned about it. The government is in fear to do anything about it.
