Muslims and the Media Monster

 

‘It’s OK for Muslim men to hit their wives’ is the sensational title that The Australian opted for when reporting on a video in which two Muslim women, members of Hizb ut-Tahrir, relayed the tafsir of a verse of the Qur’an. This predictably sent the media into overdrive and soon all major outlets were covering the story with a domestic violence angle, with politicians lining up to comment and take the moral high ground. Some within the Muslim community released a statement denouncing domestic violence and criticising the view expressed in the video.

Two days later and one of the signatories of that statement, Sheikh Shady Alsuleiman (President of the Australian National Imams Council) is the next media target.

Our response to famine: why it is imperative to go further than charity

 

The most recent trigger for fundraising action in Muslim communities has been the current famine in East Africa (Somalia specifically) and also Yemen. While these efforts are imperative and highly commendable, we must also trace the origins of such crises to properly understand the broader issue. Br Abdullah Hamimi explores this issue, highlighting the need for a deeper analysis of the causes of such famines and poverty.  (more…)

Punchbowl Boys: Children Now Target of “Derad” Witch-hunt

 

Fuelled mostly by the gutter “journalism” of rags like the Daily Telegraph and talk back radio shock jocks, the furore surrounding Punchbowl Boys High School shows no signs of abating. An impression of the school has been crafted – a hotbed of potential terrorism waiting to boil over into society, a harsh “Sharia” imposing institution and a modern ground zero in the heart of Sydney’s west for everything that is wrong with Islam and Muslims. This image has been manufactured with a narrative in which contradictions abound. (more…)

Muslims in the Media: Knowing when to speak

 

What is Islam’s position on apostates? What does sharia law say about gays? Does Islam allow men to beat their wives? Does the “Koran” tell you to kill non-Muslims “wherever you find them”? 

These are the kind of questions that many Muslims who appear in the media are often confronted with. Essentially, the questions revolve around aspects of Islamic law and Muslims are put on the spot to either deny or confirm them. (more…)
