Mahmood Fazal

From bikie gangs to prison: Vice writer Mahmood Fazal has seen the underbelly and is now on a mission to advocate for the voices we don’t hear. After abandoning his role as the Sgt-At-Arms of an outlaw bikie gang, Mahmood devoted his life to helping disenfranchised migrants from the Afghan community. His column “Inside/Outsider” challenges our views on crime and otherness, with a focus on violent crime, incarceration and radicalisation. Last year, Mahmood was awarded Young Writer of the Year at the Mumbrella Publish awards and has contributed to The Monthly, AJ+ (Al Jazeera), i-D and Noisey.
