Muslim community and the 2004 federal election
Tuesday, 21 September 2004


On 25 August 2004 AMCRAN wrote to the Prime Minister John Howard, Attorney General Philip Ruddock, and Minister for Justice and Customs Senator Chris Ellison about the upcoming election.  The letter raised a number of community concerns about the wedge politics that were on display leading up to the 2004 election.  Concern was also raised about the apparent disinformation and demonisation campaign surrounding the “children overboard” affair.  The letter was also also sent to their Opposition counterparts.  The office of the Prime Minister and the Liberal Campaign Headquarters responded to these concerns.
