Australian senator’s controversial statement: Holds immigration and ‘violent ideology’ of Islam responsible for Christchurch attack

The Queensland senator has stated that the immigration program which allowed a large number of Muslims to settle in the country is to be blamed for the dastardly attacks in two mosques of Christchurch.

Christchurch was today ravaged with multiple terror shooting attacks when terrorists reportedly entered the Masjid Al Noor mosque and Linwood mosque and opened fired at the people who came to offer their prayers there. The attack has so far claimed 49 fatalities and about 48 people have been severely injured. In the aftermath of the attack, Senator Fraser Anning of Queensland has issued a contentious statement stirring a massive controversy.

Condemning the acts of violence and the terror attacks in unequivocal terms, Senator Anning reflected upon the reason for the youth in Australia and New Zealand to embrace such violent methods against the immigrants. Anning asserted that the growing presence of Muslims in Australia and New Zealand has fanned the fears among the local communities.  Rubbishing the clichéd liberal-response of lax ‘gun laws’ responsible for the attacks, he held the immigration program which allowed a large number of Muslims to settle in the country guilty for the dastardly attacks in mosques in Christchurch.

Anning went on to reason that though the Muslims have been the victims of today’s attacks, the violent ideology professed by Muslims has killed thousands of people world over in the name of their religion. “The entire ideology of Islam is the violent ideology of a sixth-century despot masquerading as a religious leader, which justifies endless wars on anyone who opposes it and calls for the murders of non-believers and apostates,” Anning said.

Senator Anning concluded his statement saying that those who follow a violent religion and support the call to destroy the non-believers shouldn’t be surprised when someone takes their words and responds to them in kind.
