Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre Coordinator Shamima Ali says the Prime Minister should ask the Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum to resign.
While speaking in the Hindustani language, the General Secretary of the FijiFirst Party Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said other political parties like the Fiji Labour Party has candidates who are Bhajaniyas (bhajan singers).
He then asked whether the Bhajaniyas have the capabilities to stand in the parliament and speak on complicated issues.
Ali says it is totally unacceptable for a person holding so many portfolios to look down on people.
She says they have been hearing comments from various people and statements from political parties that could incite racial hatred.
Ali also says Fiji always had racial politics and if the FijiFirst Government is declaring there is racial stability, they should be the ones setting examples.
She adds Sayed-Khaiyum has insulted the sensibility of people who belong to the particular religion.
Ali further says the comment shows arrogance.
