Terror laws ‘to beat Muslims into submission’: Hizb ut-Tahrir

Islamic activist group Hizb ut-Tahrir has rejoined the anti-­terrorism debate with a vitriolic attack on Tony Abbott’s new ­security measures, saying they show the government “seeks to beat the Muslim community into submission”.

The group slammed the government’s plans to develop programs to inculcate moderate values and an aversion to extremism among Muslim schoolchildren, labelling them “deplorable”.

“The government now seeks to attack the most vulnerable of the Muslim community — its children,” Hizb ut-Tahrir said in a statement yesterday.

“To have Muslim children viewed through the lens of terror marks a new low, as suspicion and racism would be rubber-stamped within the education system.

“Pretences of ‘moderate’ and ‘extreme’ have only ever been smokescreens veiling the true evil intent of the government. It seeks to bulldoze the Muslim community with the anti-terror-laws battering ram.”

    Anything these scumbags say is bad has to be by definition good.

    “Fairness” is a sandbox concept which becomes very dangerous when utilized in the political arena. It virtually always is introduced to that arena by the most fascist-leaning segments of a society. The Liberal Party of Canada has identified itself to any thinking, conscious and literate citizen.
