A council is spending ratepayers’ money to make Muslims feel more at home, by funding workers to spread the word of Islam.
Darebin Council in Melbourne’s north is doing the hiring, using a grant from the Federal Attorney General Rober McClelland’s Counter Violent Extremism Fund.
The successful applicant will be paid $66,000 a year.
As a ratepayer Vicki Janson says the community was never consulted, and as the Deputy President of the Q Society – a group concerned with the Islamification of Australia – she’s outraged.
“We’re for integration not segregation, and really for upholding what we would call Australian values,” Janson said.
The Attorney General sees the plan as a way of building a strong and cohesive society, and resilience in the community against extremism.
