nah we semi kicked them out too. cause muslim camel riders left the country after 1901 cause of white australia and so did some chinese. even if we didnt 'make' them leave, im betting they felt rather unwelcome and left. cause the buddists came here for gold, and by 1947 there was no gold, so they'd all gone home. thats what we got taught anyway..[caity] said:yeah but the white australia policy stopped multiculturalism....sooo how can there already be 3296 buddhists b4 the policy n then 411??? we didnt kick them out of our country we only prevented more from coming so how does the numbers jus decrease like that???
