24K Sign Petition for ABC to Fire Muslim Presenter for Claiming “Islam is the Most Feminist Religion”
Daily Mail --
Yassmin Abdel-Magied turned to a hardline Islamist group for advice days after she clashed with Jacqui Lambie over Sharia Law, as it is revealed the ABC will not fire the Muslim youth activist.
The 25-year-old Sudanese-born writer and founder of Youth Without Borders sparked controversy last week when she told ABC's Q&A program she observed Islam as 'the most feminist religion'.
Just three days after the heated television debate, Ms Abdel-Magied asked Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Wassim Doureihi on social media how she could have better presented her opinion.
Support for a petition calling for her to be sacked from the ABC as a presenter, over her remarks about Sharia, has also almost doubled during the past 19 hours, from 10,635 signatures late on Sunday night to 20,068 late on Monday afternoon.
