Australian Defence Force to get its first Muslim Imam
by David Wroe
The Australian Defence Force is set to get its first Muslim Imam as part of a push to attract more recruits from different cultural and language backgrounds.
Assistant Defence Minister Stuart Robert announced on Monday he was asking Defence to "renew efforts" on recruiting a more "culturally and linguistically diverse workforce".
Part of this is to find an Imam – an Islamic religious leader – to serve on the ADF's religious advisory committee, which provides advice to the force on policies to meet its personnel's spiritual needs.
