RACIAL DISCRIMINATION ACT 1975 - SECTION 18C
to protect the citizens of Australia who are not moslems
RACIAL DISCRIMINATION ACT 1975 - SECT 18C
Offensive behaviour because of race, colour or national or ethnic origin
(1) It is unlawful for a person to do an act, otherwise than in private, if:
(a) the act is reasonably likely, in all the circumstances, to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or a group of people; and
(b) the act is done because of the race, colour or national or ethnic origin of the other person or of some or all of the people in the group.
Note: Subsection (1) makes certain acts unlawful. Section 46P of the Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 allows people to make complaints to the Australian Human Rights Commission about unlawful acts. However, an unlawful act is not necessarily a criminal offence. Section 26 says that this Act does not make it an offence to do an act that is unlawful because of this Part, unless Part IV expressly says that the act is an offence.
(2) For the purposes of subsection (1), an act is taken not to be done in private if it:
(a) causes words, sounds, images or writing to be communicated to the public; or
(b) is done in a public place; or
(c) is done in the sight or hearing of people who are in a public place.
(3) In this section:
"public place " includes any place to which the public have access as of right or by invitation, whether express or implied and whether or not a charge is made for admission to the place.
I FEEL INTIMIDATED and i call on the Australian parliament to protect me as an Australian citizen who is not a follower of islam by acting on 18C to stop the spread of violence and hatred contained in the quran.
To The Honourable Member for (state the electorate)
I know that it is my duty to keep you informed of MY WILL on anything that comes before Parliament, or should come before Parliament.
It is MY WILL that you take immediate action to honour our Constitution and protect the citizens of Australia by removing from sale the quran in any public place or business in Australia.
Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act makes it unlawful for someone to do an act that is reasonably likely to “offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate” someone because of their race or religion.
As an Australian who is not a moslem I feel intimidated that there are bookstores and other places around Australia where the quran is sold. The quran is a book that contains over 100+ verses of violence and hatred towards non believers and calls for the death of non-believers.
This is the holy book for moslems that they read and are preached to in the mosque.
Moslems are told:
quran 8:12 [Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."
quran 9:123 O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous.
quran 2:191 And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them.
Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
As a non believer of islam I feel frightened for my personal welfare and the future welfare of my children as there are a group of people in Australia who have access to this book which is teaching them to kill me and my children if we do not conform and become moslems.
As a matter of national security and acting on the government’s own legislation I demand that on the basis of legislation 18C that the quran and any moslem books preaching hatred are banned from being sold publicly in this nation.
The quran is a violent religious book that commands violence and hatred towards non-believers. I feel intimidated by its contents and demand that the contents of this letter be raised in parliament with 18C acted on and the book removed from circulation to protect myself, my family and the people of this nation that are not moslems.
I await your response and thank you for your time and consideration.
