Islamophobic Placards Target Sydney Islamic School


An offensive placard attack on a Dee Why primary school and Islamic centre in Dee Why in northern Sydney, which carried hate message against the religious minority as the school children marked Harmony Day. “It was atrocious that they were put up outside one of most multicultural schools on the northern beaches,†he said. “It’s even more atrocious that it was put up the week after the school celebrated Harmony Day.†Attorney-General and Wakehurst MP Brad Hazzard told Australia’s Daily Telegraph. Offensive Placards put up on a telegraph pole saying: “Islam = terrorism†and “Sharia free zoneâ€. It is the latest Islamophobic attack in Australia which targeted the Islamic Society Manly Warringah mosque on South Creek Rd. And last week at Dee Why Public School, children celebrating Harmony Day were confronted with signs saying: “Harmony Day is a racist attack on Australian Culture†and “Multiculturalism = division, hate and preferenceâ€. Brad Hazzard slammed the sign attack as “pathetic, yesteryear xenophobiaâ€. Hazzard also praised the Dee Why Islamic community. “Our local Muslim population are extremely peaceful, respectful and respectable people and clearly they have a substantially better outlook on life than the people who put these signs up,†he said. Muslim make upto 2.2 % of Australia’s 23.7 million population belong to several nations and communities.
