Australia’s Young Muslims: Dangerous Ground (Enhanced DVD)
There may be trouble brewing in Australia between the Muslim community and others, and efforts to stem the problems may actually be making them worse. This is the dangerous ground that is referred to in the title of this important documentary that explores a particular situation along with the bigger overall problem of Muslim relations in the country. It starts with the planning of Islamic school in Sydney and the reaction from non-Muslims in the city. A large protest against the building of the school takes place, with a wide array of people from differing backgrounds participating. Not only do the protesters have a desire to stop the school, they prefer to see the Muslims leave town. This is the type of hostility young Muslims are growing up with in the country in which they were born. The film delves into the effects it is having on how these young people feel about their country, and the possible long-term ramifications. Will Australia's tough stance regarding terrorism ultimately make the problem worse? Watch this enlightening documentary and make your own decision.
