Islam and Australia - A Clash of Values?
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Unfortunately, a large portion of Australian society harbors a misunderstanding that people from different faiths or cultures don’t contribute or integrate within Australian society. More specifically, there is also a common misconception that Australian values clash with the values of Australian Muslims. As a result of this confusion, Muslims experience ongoing prejudice and discrimination. 
To eradicate these false impressions, the concept of integration and assimilation needs to be understood from a logical perspective. Australian values are those that sustain the growth, progress, and advancement of the nation. For any Muslim living in Australia, the teachings of Islam explicitly instruct them to be active, contributing, and peaceful members of society.
