We keep hearing in media that Muslim communities and Muslim leaders are not doing enough. On Sunday, March 5, we saw a record-breaking performance by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. They topped the nation in ‘Clean Up Australia Day’ by taking out the top four positions in both most volunteers and most funds raised.

Unfortunately, not a single TV channel in NSW mentioned or showed their clip. When thousands of Muslims get together in good cause, it’s irrelevant to media, but when a single Muslim does a bad act, the whole Muslim community is blamed. I believe law abiding, peaceful Australian Muslims deserve a ‘fair go’ in Australian media.
