Correction: This page previously said Anjum Rahman was calling for Maori language providers to be more welcoming to ethnic religious minorities after some people of ethnic minorities were refused entry to te reo courses because they were not Māori. This was an inaccurate reflection of what she said and we apologise for the incorrect interpretation.
