Petition wants Pauline to share Halal snack with Sam

AN online petition is calling on One Nation leader Pauline Hanson to share a Halal snack pack with Sam Dastyari.

The campaign was launched on change.org after Hanson refused an offer from the Labor Senator to meet in Sydney and enjoy a meal together.

The petition already has more than 2000 supporters, adding: "As Pauline has been elected to parliament, we would like her to come to Sydney and share a Halal snack pack with Sam Dastyari."

Responding to Dastyari's offer Hanson said: ""It's not happening, not interested in halal, thank you".

Her One Nation party has been campaigning against halal certification claiming that it is a "money making racket" funding terrorism.

Her remarks have also inspired a GoFundMe campaign to take over her old fish and chip shop in Ipswich and turn it into a kebab or halal store.

A post on the account, which has more than 2000 shares, reads: "To make a point to the new senator elect from Queensland, Pauline Hanson, the purpose of this GoFundMe is to purchase Pauline Hansons's old Fish and Chip shop and turn it into either a Kebab Shop or a Pop-Up Halal Snack-Pack store."
