Calls from the head of the Destiny Church for restrictions on the religious practices of non-Christian faiths are being labelled short-sighted.

Federation of Islamic Associations president Javed Khan said today it is disappointing. He said the Destiny Church itself does not reflect a lot of the views of mainstream Christian organisations.

Mr Khan believes it does nothing to further religious tolerance in New Zealand.

He said a lot of work is going into the relationships between different religious faiths and such comments do not help.

He hopes Christian groups will condemn them.
