There are more Muslims behind bars in Victoria than Aborigines. In NSW, Muslims represent about 3 per cent of the population and 9 per cent of the prison population. When a community is being disproportionately thrown in jail, governments and research bodies are usually interested to find out why. This is the case with Australia’s indigenous population. It is not the case with Australian Muslims. Whatever the reasons behind the Muslim incarceration rates, governments and research bodies don’t want to know. Neither, it seems, do Muslim leaders.
