Young Muslims discriminated by media in Australia
A report released by an organisation for Islamic youth highlights religious and racial discrimination by media as one of the biggest challenges facing young Muslim Australians.

The report is the result of several conferences by the Independent Centre of Research Australia.

The organisation says media internships for Muslims should be funded by the government to break down cultural stereotypes.

Chairman for the ICRA, Fadi Abdul Rahman says young Muslims feel angry and marginalised about negative press.

"They have already been labeled as, you know, the majority are perhaps criminals or the majority are perhaps no good and I guess this misperception about young people is really turning young people into these marginalised alienated group of young people within their own society and this is very very dangerous."
