Bendigo Advertiser letters to the editor

Wonderful people

You have to feel sad for One Nation leader Pauline Hanson and her belief that it would be difficult to spot a good Muslim.  She doesn’t know what she is missing.  Pauline, there are millions of good Muslims and they are easy to spot … they look just like you and me. My wife and I, with support from about 20 very generous people from Bendigo and district, run a small project in Indonesia, helping to educate young Muslim women from a very poor village.  One is now a teacher, another a nurse, giving back to their communities. They are the first girls from their village to go to university.  Another nurse and a teacher will graduate in the next two years.  I can tell you, Pauline, that these young women, and their families, are wonderful, generous people who think Australians are pretty good.  Our supporters are a mixture of Buddhist, Christian, agnostic, atheist and their position, like ours, is that Muslims are good people.
