Keysar Trad, the president of the Islamic Friendship Association, has complained to the Attorney-General, Robert McClelland over a game that encourages hatred of Muslims.

Trad has accused the Federal Government of double standards after the government has failed to act to block the game, Muslim Massacre, which can currently be downloaded for free online. Trad believes the game breeches sedition laws and incites violence against the Muslim community.

According to reports in today’s Sydney Morning Herald, the game invites players to take control of an American “hero” and “wipe out the Muslim race with an arsenal of the world’s most destructive weapons”.

It was created by a 22-year-old programmer going by the online handle Sigvatr, who says on his website that he is from Brisbane and works part-time as a service station attendant.

Trad believes the government should act against ‘Sigvatr’ and sees their failure to act as hypocrisy – citing the case of Lakemba man Belal Saadallah Khazaal as an example. Kazaal was found guilty in September of making a “do it yourself terrorism guide” knowing it could be used to assist a terrorist act.

Trad believes Sigvatr’s game falls into a simialr category… The Attorney General’s office however sees things differently. The only response Trad has received from the department has been an explanation of Australia’s content classification and racial discrimination laws and the government bodies tasked with administering them.
