NSW One Nation Leader Mark Latham says it is “completely unacceptable” the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils is promoting a forum featuring a Taliban spokesman.

The event, which is titled, “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and Diaspora Muslims” is scheduled to be streamed on the federation’s Facebook page on Saturday night.

“The Taliban have been an evil force in Afghanistan,” Mr Latham told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“Australian soldiers lost their lives combatting them, they seem to be unrepentant in terms of the sort of discrimination and oppression they force upon their own people in Afghanistan and we don’t want those messages coming into Australia.

“So I’d call upon sensible, moderate, caring voices in the Islamic community to say this shouldn’t happen.

“Someone’s got to step in and bring some common sense to it.”
