Dear Sir

Thank you for your feedback which we appreciate. We are conscious that some of Ayaan Hirsi Ali's views are controversial and that the right wing media regularly cite her views to promote their agenda. We have discussed this in depth with her publisher, who is handling the media engagements for Hirsi Ali in Australia and have asked them to ensure that they factor this into account when arranging her schedule.

Kind regards,

Stella Collier
