Australia's minority political party 'One Nation' Senator Plan Hinson entered In the Parlement wearing Burqa on August 17th august .


According to the US news agency Associated Press (AP) report, the stunt of female politicians was due to demand the national ban on Islamic Burqa ,  on which the lawmakers criticized him.

Government minister George Brandis condemned Ms Hanson's stunt and "counselled and cautioned" her against causing offence to religious groups.

Mr Brandis received a standing applause from opposition parties.

In an emotional speech, Mr Brandis said Ms Hanson's actions risked alienating approximately 500,000 Australians who adhered to the Islamic faith.

"To ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its religious garments, is an appalling thing to do and I would ask you reflect on what you have done," said Mr Brandis, who is Australia's attorney-general.

He added: "No, Senator Hanson, we will not ban the burka."
