Taqiyya TV! Muslims in Australia set up TV network to tackle mainstream media portrayal of Islam

Members of the Muslim community in Australia have set up a not-for-profit television studio to counter the mainstream media’s portrayal of Islam.

Costing $1 million, the studio – cited as a 21st Dawah initiative – aims to spread the word of Islam among Muslims and non-Muslims. It was reportedly funded by community donations, and is staffed by a team of over 20 volunteers.

Based in western Sydney, the One Path Network films and edits videos for its YouTube channel. Organisers say it was set up to provide “authentic Islamic knowledge using a professional contemporary approach”.
