According to a report by ‘Department of Immigration and Citizenship,’ Muslim families share a good relationship with the Australians but as far as the Aussie media is concerned, they are applauding the Muslims as terrorists.
The report says that the Muslim clans feel safe in the country but are not happy with the behaviors of the local media who claim them as criminals. According to Ilan Katz, of the Social Policy Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, it has been strongly believed that the media is targeting the Muslims and this facet has served as a huge concern for them. Mr. Katz is the co-author of the study as well.
The interview was conducted amongst 72 people and the result has been shocking. The report states that the overall response towards the Muslims has changed, especially after the 9/11 attacks in the United States. He stated that the family members are of the view that the attitude of the community has become rigid and stringent towards them, after the incident.
The media channels portray the Muslims as terrorists, hence going all against them. Although the country is safe to live in, the media is not in favor of them. The Muslims are although positive about their friends, colleagues and neighbors who are friendly with them. In addition, they have been treated with low incomes as well as various discrimination attitudes.
