All of Australia's national security changes since 9/11 in a timeline. Ramadan in Australia - 3,10 (History) Education resources for schools teachers and students - ABC Education. The consequences of Muslim bad guys on-screen. So who'd have guessed it?
Hollywood presents Islam and Muslims in a negative light! At least this is the conclusion of the Islamic Human Rights Commission's recent study. Be it the careless ridicule of funny accents and clothes in the Indiana Jones trilogy (by a director who really ought to know better) or the more malevolent terrorist caricatures evident in The Siege, True Lies and countless others, Muslim bad guys (and so far it's always men) have never been more prevalent on screen. As the study is quick to point out, however, it's not something unique to the US since we're pretty good at it ourselves.
Should Australia ban the burqa? Attorney-General George Brandis ruled out a burqa ban, declaring it was vital for intelligence and law enforcement agencies to work cooperatively with Muslim communities to prevent terrorism.
“To ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its religious garments, is an appalling thing to do,’’ he thundered, to applause from Labor and the Greens. The Koran decrees that men and women should “cover and be modest’’ – yet interpretations of the Islamic scripture differ widely. The conservative practice of “wearing the veil’’ appears to have originated in Persia 1000 years ago.
Saudia Arabian women still wear the burqa, which covers the entire body and face with only a mesh window for the eyes. A variant is the niqab, a black or drab garment which covers the body and face to expose only the eyes. But the most common religious dress for Muslim women in Australia – particularly those with a southeast Asian background - is the hijab, a scarf that covers only the hair and chest. New Report Shows Increase in Severe Islamophobic Attacks.
New research published by Charles Sturt University documents examples of Islamophobia experienced by Australia’s Muslim community.
The research shows a worrying trend with perpetrators becoming more brazen. Harassment in public areas guarded by security officers and CCTV has jumped 30 per cent. There has also been an increase in severe attacks requiring hospitalisation, which jumped from 2 per cent to 5 per cent. The findings of this report reflect the early analysis of surveys of Australia’s Muslim Community, conducted by the Australian Human Rights Commission. The surveys are ongoing and will report back early next year. Race Discrimination Commissioner Chin Tan said, “Islamophobic abuse is unacceptable and no person should suffer hatred because of their race, religion or culture.

The 21-year-old had just organised a Brisbane vigil for the Christchurch victims, something she thinks the man could not have known.

Islamophobia alive and well in Australia. Australians accepting of migrants but negative towards Islam, poll finds. Lovers of regulation, supporters of same-sex couples and very liberal when it comes to abortion – this is how a sample of a thousand Australians perceive themselves.
Australia is a country that accepts gay couples, hates the big banks, considers second-generation migrants “Australian”, but the majority feel negatively towards Islam. New wide-ranging data released by YouGov has revealed fascinating insights into the Australian identity, its place in the world, and its many contradictions. Australians were the second-highest out of 23 countries surveyed in not considering where someone’s parents come from as relevant to identifying as Australian, but in our personal lives, 47% admitted to having “very few” or no close friends of a different ethnic background.
And 80% of us believe women still suffer discrimination, but a third also think the women’s rights movement has gone too far. Islam and other religions.
