The Mosque Next Door, SBS, Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 8, at 8.30pm

FOR many non-Mus­lim Aus­tralians, the mosque is shrouded in mys­tery, and for some, con­tro­versy. But how many Aus­tralians have ever stepped in­side one?

For the first time in Aus­tralia, tele­vi­sion cam­eras were given un­prece­dented 24-hour ac­cess into an Aus­tralian mosque.

Bris­bane’s Hol­land Park Mosque is one of the old­est in Aus­tralia. Lo­cated near Pauline Han­son’s for­mer elec­torate when she was first elected to fed­eral par­lia­ment, the mosque has found it­self in the fir­ing line amid grow­ing fears from some in the wider com­mu­nity that Is­lam is con­trary to the Aus­tralian way of life.

Now, the mosque throws open its doors for a look at a year in the life of the peo­ple in­side.
