TV host Sonia Kruger called for halting Muslim immigration to Australia, claiming that keeping members of the religious group out of the country will make it safer.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the co-host of Channel Nine's "Today Extra" in Australia was responding to a column by News Corp's Andrew Bolt that stated that jihadist terrorists have turned France into "Europe's bloodiest battlefield" and that "France let in the most Muslims."

"Personally I think Andrew Bolt has a point here that there is a correlation between the number of Muslims in a country and the number of terrorist attacks," Kruger said on air Monday.

"Personally I would like to see it [the immigration of Muslims] stopped now for Australia because I would like to feel safe as all of our citizens do when they go out to celebrate Australia Day and I'd like to see freedom of speech," Kruger added.

Her cohost David Campbell jumped in for a brief rebuttal, according to the Daily Mail, saying, "'I'd like to see freedom of religion as well as well as freedom of speech. They both go hand and hand."

Kruger's suggested Muslim ban echoed that of presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who first called for a total ban on Muslim immigrants in December and later modified it to a ban on Muslims coming from countries with heavy terrorist activity, reported CNN.

The comments of the former Australian "Dancing With the Stars" host stirred a strong reaction on social media.
