Muslim leaders back advisory body plan
Muslim community leaders strongly support moves to improve the image of Islamic society in Australia.
Sporting stars, academics and businesspeople will be among those asked to sit on a new advisory body proposed by the federal government, News Ltd reports.
The delegation would set out to find ways of dissolving public misconceptions of Muslims as being overly religious.
A previous advisory body was abolished by the former Howard government after a trouble-plagued 12 months.
