Spokesman for the Islamic Council of Queensland, Ali Kadri appeared on ABC’s The Drum on 19 June. Hosted by John Barron, Kadri joined fellow panelists Kate Eastman, James Morrow, Marius Benson. The panel discusses the Finsbury Park “terror attack”, Gonski & the future of the Human Rights Commission as Gillian Triggs prepares to step down. “As a Muslim leader, we are the largest victims of terrorism, be it here or overseas and now we have to cop it on all sides. Politicians, my one message to them, all of them, please stop dividing us, please stop jumping on this populist bandwagon. It’s not going to win you any votes and its only going to divide our country.”
