Australia considers outlawing Hizb ut-Tahrir

Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia will be banned if intelligence authorities judge it a terrorist threat, the Australian PM said Monday, August 8, days after the UK declared it would ban the controversial Islamic group. “If ASIO tells us that an organization like this … does represent a threat, then we’ll take action to ban it,” Howard told Macquarie Radio, CNSNews reported Monday.
