Call to ban Muslims from PNG

Updated 22 March 2012, 10:00 AEDT

In Papua New Guinea, a Christian leader has called on the Government to review the section in the country's Constitution that guarantees "freedom of religion" in order to ban Muslims from the country in light of the recent terrorist attacks in the United States.

Paster Charles Lapa a church leader with the Christian Revival Crusade in Port Moresby said the American attacks, allegedly masterminded by Muslim and wanted international terrorist, Osama bin Laden, was the work of such extremist groups. Pastor Lapa said Muslims should not have been allowed into the country because they had "a different belief". However, Father Roger Mount, Chancellor of the Catholic Arch Diocese of Port Moresby begs to differ.
