Hon Jason Claire, minister for Home Affairs and member for Blaxland
Hon Michael Gallacher, NSW minister for Police
We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Auburn and surrounding suburbs, would like to ask you to remove one of the most dangerous centres from our area. Al Bukhari bookstore was active in spreading religious and sectarian hate in the area for the last few years. The management of the store not only produced offensive DVDs and CDs against other religions and followers of certain sects, but was also active in supporting heavy bullying tactics and attacks to enforce sectarian and religious segregation in the area. With heavy involvement of the centre attendees in the disturbing scenes last weekend, we feel that enough is enough.
We would like to ask you here to work very hard to close this centre from our area before the disturbing scenes of the last weekend spread to our suburbs.
