Dictionary of Sydney – Muslims in Sydney

On the 21st of March was Harmony Day which is a celebration of Australia’s cultural diversity.

We have seen intolerance towards Muslims during the last decade; most of us are likely to remember the Cronulla riots, 2005 and the demonstrations in Camden early 2008.
