The Screen Guide

JIHAD SHEILAS tells the extraordinary journey of two women from the conservative heartland of regional Australia in to the maelstrom of fundamentalist Islam. From Dubbo to Kenya, from Mudgee to Afghanistan, this ABC News Special takes viewers inside a closed world, to a story of radical transformation like no other. When it screened on ABC TV, it prompted significant public debate and comment - but this is not a program about the Muslim community as a whole; it is a story of two women and their powerful, personal journeys.
