The historic role of Muslims in the development of Australia. Something for those who pursue hate against Islam to think upon.

Cross-posted with Beside The Creek

The ABC program, Compass, last night and to-day, broadcast a wonderful program about the role of Afghan cameleers in opening up The Outback of Australia in the 19th century.

The program, By Compass and Quran, will be available on ABC iview until 7.30pm on 26 April 2015.

It is a wonderful insight into another world.  The cameleers married Australian women - white women, Aboriginal women.  Their descendants speak strongly and fondly of their Afghan forebears. There is also film of original mosques in which the cameleers prayed. And there is also a comment on why camels are now a plague in outback Australia.

This Q&A is now closed. Thank you for all your questions. 
Thank you very much Kuranda.-------Please give a warm...
