Diwan Al Dawla’s mission in Australia involves tackling the structural religious disadvantage that is manifest in the use by the NSW state government and its federal Australian counterpart of religious symbols that bear crusader crosses (see Diwan Al Dawla's statement, pp 2-3). This use connects to negative social and religious implications upon individuals and families who deny such symbols within the narratives of their everyday lives and religious practices. In fact, this stark use of religious symbols with its associated mindset has introduced imbedded psychological and racial biases that play out with issues of religious discrimination and common socioeconomic disadvantage as experienced by individuals and families who live in migrant dominated areas such as Western Sydney.

The upholding of religious crosses and symbols over what is supposed to be secular, such as public institutions and public flags, has further resulted in an ensuing religious hypocrisy on the level of incorporated associations. Hypocritical religious associations often centered in areas such as Lakemba, Bankstown and Auburn in Sydney's Western suburbs, have organised their religious practice under the NSW Associations Incorporation Act becoming thus incorporated under the politicised symbols of the crusader religion. It is this religious hypocrisy that has ultimately bred radicalisation amongst a youth subculture who have continued to struggle with an identity crisis that has resulted from such hypocrisy.

Diwan Al Dawla’s mission includes combatting such religious hypocrisy by running active campaigns to make people aware about its social and religious risks. The guild also works to empower vulnerable individuals, particularly the youth, in overcoming the associated structural religious disadvantage by offering them opportunities for practical engagement that is accompanied by spiritual support in accordance with the guild's strategy.

Diwan Al Dawla as an unincorporated religious guild carries a solution to an ongoing religious crisis that only an entity of its like can tackle.

Diwan Al Dawla is an alternative to hypocritical religious associations; an alternative that is a historical reality and not one that awaits to be approved or endorsed by its religious adversaries.
