The Islamic Women’s Council has been a solid and consistent voice not only in the aftermath of the terror attacks last year, but for years before - attempting to draw attention to the threats the Muslim community faced. Their voice was heard immediately after the attacks pointing to the amount of times they had tried to communicate information about these threats to officials but to no avail. The Royal Commission of Inquiry into the attack is almost finished, and the Council submitted their 127-page submission yesterday. They have also released this publicly which doesn’t normally happen. The submission includes details around meetings between Muslim groups and govt agencies, where no minutes were taken, and recommendations were ignored, it also addresses an online threat made against a Hamilton mouse on March 15th, the same day the terror attacks happened, that was never followed up by police. Lillian spoke to co-founder Anjum Rahman to find out more.
