Former Islamic council boss praises Pauline Hanson for wearing the burka in Parliament & backs calls for the Muslim garment to be banned

A former Islamic council boss backs Pauline Hanson’s burqa ban over fears terrorists could hide weapons under them.

Haset Sali, former president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, said he agreed with the One Nation leader wearing an $87 burqa to the Senate.

He said the stunt showed the religious garment could be dangerous as it concealed the identity of its wearer, and praised her for raising awareness.
