Coming of Age: Growing Up Muslim in Australia

Listen to Coming of Age: Growing Up Muslim in Australia

Coming of Age: Growing up Muslim in Australia is a timely new book that explores the diversity within the many Muslim communities around Australia, through the personal stories of Muslim Australians – boxers, lawyers and authors amongst them.

Tasneem Chopra is chair of the Australian Women’s Centre for Human Rights and one of Melbourne’s most influential women. Irfan Yusuf is a commentator and author of Once Were Radicals: My Years As A Teenage Islamo-fascist. Together with their fellow panellists, they examine the worlds of sport, sex, religion, humour and society, as seen through an Islamic prism.
