The New Zealand Federation of Islamic Associations is laying a formal complaint with the Human Rights Commission over Richard Prosser's comments.
The New Zealand First MP apologised today for offending many peaceful law-abiding Muslims with his article in Investigate magazine.
Association President Anwar Ghani hopes the complaint will see Mr Prosser step down from his position.
He says a person of his intellect doesn't deserve to be in Parliament.
The Federation of Islamic Associations will also write a formal letter of complaint to New Zealand First leader Winston Peters asking for further action.
