A Message to the Australian Muslim Community


Peter Khalil, the Federal Member for Wills, has given a statement to the Australian Parliament as part of a motion on the Bourke Street terrorist attack.

In his remarks to the Federation Chamber on Tuesday, Mr Khalil spoke directly to the Australian Muslim community, saying,

“Let me just say this to the Australian Muslim community and to the community in my electorate and across the nation: you are not responsible for the actions of one individual. We know the work you are doing to actually help fight radicalisation in your own communities. That is something that is as critically important to your communities as it is to the broader Australian community.”
