    Taxpayers to fund 'open days' at 13 mosques to help 'break down misconceptions of Islam' in Australia

    17 April 2017
    • Australian taxpayers will fork out thousands to fund upcoming mosque open day
    • The Mosque open day on May 7 will help end 'Islamophobia' in the country
    • The open day was funded by the Victorian Government to educate Australians
    • 'We want the Victorian community to look beyond what is portrayed of Muslims'

    The Islamic Council of Victoria told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday it received an extra $16,500 from the State Government for the open day.
    But the peak Muslim body received more than $95,000 in taxpayer grants in 2016-2017, an $80,000 'community harmony' payout and $10,000 for a Muslim arts festival, the Herald Sun reports.
    The Andrews Labor Government has long supported the Islamic community in Victoria.

    The Government promised almost $1 million in 2015 to 'support a better understanding of Islamic culture'.
