One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has called for tighter Muslim immigration laws in the wake of the "politically motivated" Sydney shooting last week.

Naturalised Australian Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar was shot dead when police returned fire after the baby-faced 15-year-old gunman killed NSW Police employee Curtis Cheng in Parramatta on Friday afternoon.

Ms Hanson and Derryn Hinch weighed in on the tragic incident on Sunrise today, with the controversial politician's views, in which she referenced the Quran, causing conjecture.

"Both sides of parliament are not doing enough to address this whole issue," Ms Hanson said from Queensland.

"What Islam stands for it is not compatible with our country ... let the Muslim countries take them.

"There are 400 on our streets now under surveillance," she went on. "This is is the only religion we've had so many problems with. It's a political ideology that's not compatible with our way of life.

"We need to know what's being taught in Islamic schools and mosques ... get out of your glasshouses and go and see what's happening."

The interview came hours before an announcement that asylum seekers at a detention centre in Nauru would be processed "within the next week", and amid a global refugee crisis.
