    Western Sydney Mosque celebrates Australia Day with flag-raising ceremony
    The Muslim community say they are thankful to be living in the ‘lucky country’

    Not even an embarrassing blunder raising Kiwi flag dampened their patriotism


    PUBLISHED: 23:15 GMT, 26 January 2021 |

    Mosque worshippers showing their patriotism with a very Australian celebration made one unfortunate error – hoisting a New Zealand flag.

    Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Marsden Park, western Sydney, spent Australia Day beside the barbecue, snacking on lamingtons, and raising the flag in a heartwarming tribute to their beloved adopted home.

    One member of the patriotic group, Javal, said it was a special day for everyone in the community who were overwhelmingly born overseas.

    And despite their embarrassing blunder, they couldn’t be happier or more proud to be part of ‘the lucky country’.

    The rest of the grounds were filled with so many Australian flags, it was impossible to count them all as they were putting them up for a week.

    ‘It brings everyone together… it unifies, it doesn’t look at differences, it doesn’t look at the colour of your skin, how rich or poor you are,’ Javal told A Current Affair.

    ‘It unites people and for me that is singularly one of the best things humanity can offer.’
