The ABC is standing by Muslim activist, broadcaster and Q&A panelist Yassmin Abdel-Magied after a petition called for her sacking after her controversial comments supporting Sharia Law on the Q&A program last week.

The online petition, which started on Monday, has thus far garnered 27,000 signatures and has called for Abdel-Magied to be stood down from both Q&A and as a presenter on teh ABC’s Australia Wide.

However, in a statement to media, the ABC has shown their support for Abdel-Magied: “In addition to her ABC role, Yassmin Abdel-Magied engages in a number of other activities in her capacity as a writer, commentator and engineer. We stand by her right to appear on Q&A and share with the wider community her personal views in this capacity.
