Seriously, you couldn’t make it up. The hide and the hubris of the swine is breathtaking. Once again, the ICV demands a say about what is taught about Islam, how it is taught and to prevent anyone from telling the truth, they insist on having their own taqiyya gigolos in universities to paint a rosy picture about the cult.
Islamic Council of Victoria: too many studies into terrorism, radicalisation negatively affecting Muslims
THE state’s peak Islamic body wants a say in how universities research Muslim issues amid claims there is too much focus on terrorism and youth radicalisation.
A report by the the Islamic Council of Victoria said that Muslim research was a “growth industry” but negative portrayal of the community was causing distress to members, especially youth.
Under proposed new guidelines for university partners, any research would have to minimise harm to Muslims while maximising community benefits.
Academics would need to consider the effects of research results on the community’s “self-perception or beliefs, on perceptions outside the community, or on social service delivery within the community”.
Published on the ICV’s website, the guidelines were adapted from a model created by Yale University in the US.
The council said that feedback from its members indicated that some researchers lacked an understanding of the diversity of the Muslim community, its culture and history.
“Research which focuses on Muslims through the lens of law enforcement, counter-terrorism, criminology or radicalisation also reinforces those narratives which support Islamophobia,” the report said.
“Muslim youth were clear that their mental health was deteriorating from the overabundance of
public policies, media reports and research ‘evidence’ focusing on a negative future.”
At the same time, there was lack of data in areas including family violence, sexual health, drugs and alcohol, housing and prison incarceration rates.
