Attorney-General George Brandis rebukes Senator Hanson's demand of banning burqa

Australian far-right senator Pauline Hanson on Thursday called for banning burqa in public places. Hanson arrived at the Senate chamber for the daily question time session dressed in a black burqa, which she later removed calling to ban the religious garment. Hanson was rebuked by Attorney-General George Brandis who asked her to reflect on her actions as Muslim Australians would find it offensive."To ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its religious garment is an appealing thing to do. And I would ask you to reflect on what you have done." Brandis said. Hanson reportedly looked "visibly delighted with the commotion" and took Brandis's rebuke in good humour.
