The Mosque Next Door

The Mosque Next Door

Episode 1  |  SBS  |  November 8, 2017

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 one of Australia's oldest mosques - Holland Park Mosque in Brisbane - to join a community rarely seen from the inside. This year, the mosque finds itself in the firing line as never before, as it faces increasing hostility from the wider Australian public and spiralling pressures from within.
