New Zealand MP Calls for Muslim Flight Ban & Labels Islam a Stone Age Religion

Feb 12, 2013
 
Faizel Patel, Radio Islam News – 2013-02-12
 
A 45 year old New Zealand politician, Mr. Richard Prosser, of the New Zealand First party has labelled young Muslim men terrorist threats who should be banned from Western airlines, sparking condemnation from Prime Minister John Key.

The Waimakariri list MP also labelled Islam a "stone age religion" in an article he wrote in his Eyes Right column in Ian Wishart's Investigate magazine. He claims that most terrorists were "angry young Muslim men who hate the West". He accepts that most Muslims are not terrorists, but it's "equally undeniable'' that "most terrorists are Muslims''.

He said, “If you are a young male, aged between say about 19 and about 35, and you're a Muslim, or you look like a Muslim, or you come from a Muslim country, then you are not welcome to travel on any of the West's airlines,”

"I will not stand by while my daughters' rights and freedoms, and those of other New Zealanders and Westerners, are denigrated by a sorry pack of misogynist troglodytes from 'Wogistan', added Prosser."

Dr Anwar Ghani the president of Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand said comments made by Prosser were ''racist and extremely objectionable.'' He said New Zealand could stand to lose millions of dollars’ worth of business in the education sector and compromise the country's growing economic relationship with the Middle East.

Dr. Ghani – who lives in Hamilton said although the city enjoyed a very good inter-faith working group, and reasonably good ethnic integration, comments like Prosser's ''create distrust''. ''(And) once you have distrust in the community you cannot enjoy peace. ''His (Prosser's) comments are undermining the peaceful nature we have in this community

Meanwhile New Zealand’s leader Winston Peters said Prosser had ''wrongfully impugned millions of law-abiding, peaceful Muslims''.
