LETTER: Cartoon promotes misinformation about Muslims

THE cartoon in your December 14 edition broadcasts three pieces of misinformation about Australian Muslims and contributes to the vilification and derision directed at our Muslim citizens that seems to be abroad in the community at the moment.

Muslims do not access welfare at any greater rate than the rest of the community.

Muslims in Australia do not have more than one spouse.

It is illegal. Very few Muslim women wear burqa or niqab.

Freedom of the press is fine but responsibility and accuracy go with it.
