There is no place for racial discrimination in New Zealand
National List MP Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi has condemned anti-Muslim comments by NZ First MP Richard Prosser.
“Mr Prosser’s uninformed and offensive comments have the potential to seriously damage New Zealand’s international reputation, and our standing as a fair and tolerant nation,” Mr Bakshi said.
“New Zealand prides itself on being an inclusive society, and we have a very strong tradition of human rights. However, from time to time we are reminded that closed-mindedness still exists in our community.
“As a Sikh, and member of a minority community, I understand how hurtful comments like this can be. Mr Prosser’s suggestions have absolutely no place in our Parliament, or our country.”
