Activist Abdel-Magied, one of the founders of youth-empowerment group Youth Without Borders, blasted the Ms Lambie before insisting Islam “is the most feminist religion”.

“Do you know what Sharia law is? Me praying five times a day is Sharia,” Abdel-Magied fired back.

The fact is there’s one law in this country and it is the Australian law, it is not Sharia law – not in this country! Not in my day
“I’m not going to attack you personally but my frustration is that people talk about Islam without knowing anything about it.
“And they’re willing to completely negate any of my rights as a human being, as a woman, as a person with agency, simply because they have an idea about what my faith is about.

Ms Lambie then cut in and administered a blow to the cheers of audience members.
She said: “The fact is there’s one law in this country and it is the Australian law, it is not Sharia law – not in this country! Not in my day.”
Abdel-Magied responded and insisted “in Sharia it says you follow the law of the land on which you are on”.
The pair then continued to shout over each other before the host was forced to intervene.
