Minister Geoff Lee’s letter to David Shoebridge

You may be aware that a Greens party member of NSW Parliament had recently accused VHP, a Hindu not-for-profit organization of being an extremist organization. Mr Shoebridge’s allegation has been denied by the Police and VHPs work in teaching Hinduism at schools has been appreciated by the Department of Education, by the NSW Minister of Multiculturalism and by MP Mark Latham of One Nation Party. Mr Shoebridge has not retracted his statement and nor has he apologized to VHP and Hindu community. 

The matter has been raised in the Upper House by Mr Mark Latham and a statement has been read by the only Hindu MLC Mr Daniel Mookhey.
