SL migrant forms new party in Aussie

A Sri Lankan migrant has launched a political party that runs on an anti-multiculturalism platform.

Rise Up Australia already boasts about 1,500 members and plans to run 65 candidates in the upcoming federal election.

"Rise Up Australia Party, which is committed to keeping Australia for Australians, is utterly and completely opposed to multiculturalism, says Rise Up Australia's founder Daniel Nalliah.

The Sri Lankan-born pastor draws on his own migrant past in defence of assimilation.

That message has the backing of international figures.

"If you come here, then follow Pastor Danny's example and enjoy it and celebrate it and do not seek to destroy it," said Christopher Monckton from the UK Independence Party.

The leader of the new party has come under fire in the past for anti-Islamic comments, but he wasn't backing away from making controversial statements again today.

"True Muslims are radicals, unfortunately. If they practice the Koran, they're radicals," he said.

If elected, Rise Up wants to restrict the number of Muslims calling Australia 'home'.

The party has 1,500 supporters across the country, and is putting forward 52 candidates in the Lower House and a dozen in the Senate in the upcoming federal election.

Many of the supporters are concerned about what they claim is the "Islamification of Australia".

"If we're not careful, we're going to lose this country," said a supporter. "I don't want to see Sharia Law in Australia," said another.
But Iqbal Patel from Muslims Australia says that's far from happening.

"Nobody wants to impose Sharia law in Australia, I mean, far from it. That's the last thing that anybody wants to do". (SBS)

    Peter Monday, 11 February 2013 11:00 PM

    This guy (being a migrant) looks doing a contract for Aussie conservatives, no wonder having international support.

    Another fool. Being Tamil does not mean LTTE or LTTE supporter.

    Davina Monday, 11 February 2013 11:47 PM

    If you make comments, try and make sensible ones. Factual ones might be too much for you.

    Sapumal Bandara Monday, 11 February 2013 10:50 AM

    Australia belongs to the Australians. You don't have to worry about it. If you are not happy in Australia, please leave Australia on the next available flight / boat.

    Often preached, but seldom practiced.

    Be cautious of the Muslims. They are trouble makers in the world. They kill in the name of Halal.

    roshan Tuesday, 12 February 2013 01:39 AM

    I think this 'Kalu Suddha' has never stood infront of a mirror before speaking about anti multicultaralism.

    noor Tuesday, 12 February 2013 05:47 AM

    Banda Monday, 11 February 2013 11:33 AM

    You are another ingnorant person..Do you know the meaning of Halal? I am a non-muslim but will be happy to teach you what it is..Just dont comment for the sake of commenting. Muslims are peaceful..Every religion has trouble makers..Don't judge everyone based on them.

    NonResident Tuesday, 12 February 2013 11:43 AM

    Nalliah is laying the foundation for Ealam Nadu in Australia. His theme "Anti-Multiculturalism" itself is very revealing! He is a person who opted to forsake Sri Lankan culture for Australian. What stops him from forsaking Australian culture for Ealam Culture in the future? A typical wolf in sheep's clothing!

    Mistaken identity ...black brother fighting for white supremacy

    Sapumal Bandara Monday, 11 February 2013 11:53 AM

    I totally agree that the majority of Muslims in Sri Lanka are peaceful and they are not a threat to our society.
    The radical minority of Sri Lankan Muslims are extremists and are a grave threat to everybody, including the majority peace loving Muslims of Sri Lanka.

    niki Tuesday, 12 February 2013 02:50 AM

    Macho ask for a separate land in ausi, have the elam set it there, no worries we will wholeheartedly support your good deed. ask for a separate land even 10 pearch will do
