Putra is a German born far right activist. He moved to Australia during his youth where he pursued a career in business and sales. He became involved in the far right during the 90s when he joined One Nation. He was firmly opposed to non white immigration. He stood on their behalf in the local elections for Lindsay in 1998.

Putra has since resurfaced as a local anti Islam organiser in his hometown of Penrith. He founded the Protect Penrith Action Group in late 2014, which has attracted an array of far right groups to the anti-mosque campaign. While Putra’s current political allegiances are unknown, we would assume he is connected to former Liberal politician Marcus Cornish.
