The Government’s new proposals for tougher and broader anti-terror legislation in Australia has met with much criticism from civil liberty groups. The Muslim community has been highlighted throughout the weeks of discussion, with several press releases issued by community organisations and groups in opposition of the proposed changes.

The Muslim Legal Network (MLN) is one group that provided the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security with feedback on the proposals.

Miran talks to solicitor Sarah Khan of the MLN about the controversial bill.
