Mosque welcomes TV viewers
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.
