Into the Wild

Read The Islamic Republic of Australia Online Free - From jihadis to hijabs and everything in between - what it means to be Muslim down under today

In this humorous and insightful exploration of Islam in Australia, award-winning comedian and writer Sami Shah speaks with Muslims across the country, from the founder of a new group called Muslims for Progressive Values who believes in a feminist interpretation of the Quran, to the official spokesperson for Hizb ut-Tahrir; to a Muslim preacher who thinks IS deserves credit for keeping Muslims conservative.

Based on Shah's much-lauded 5-part radio documentary, THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF AUSTRALIA takes us behind the stereotypes and generalisations, to find out who Australian Muslims are, how they live and what they think. The answers are both multitudinous and surprising, resulting in a fascinating multi-faceted and entertaining portrait of Islam in Australia today.
