Muslim Broadcast Head says BBC airs too much Christian content and must air Islamic prayers


BBC says it airs TOO MUCH Christian content and should produce more shows for Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs

  • Head of religion and ethics found BBC’s religious output disproportionate
  • Plenty of shows celebrating Christianity but too few for other faiths
  • New Muslim, Hindu, Sikh content may mean axe falls on long term shows

 

Aaqil Ahmed, the broadcaster's head of religion and ethics, has compiled a dossier which accuses the BBC of ignoring faiths outside Christianity

Aaqil Ahmed, the broadcaster’s head of religion and ethics, has compiled a dossier which accuses the BBC of ignoring faiths outside Christianity.

The BBC has accused itself of being too Christian in its output – and is considering scrapping some of its long-running programmes in favour of shows for Muslim, Hindu and Sikh audiences.

Aaqil Ahmed, the broadcaster’s head of religion and ethics, compiled a report following consultation with non-Christians who expressed their belief that the BBC is disproportionate in its religious content.

The feeling is that while there are plenty of shows that celebrate Christianity, there are too few for other faiths.

BBC director general Lord Hall has been handed the dossier and is believed to be giving thorough consideration to its suggestions.

It comes after last week’s white paper on the BBC ordered the broadcaster to offer more for ethnic minorities.

In a statement provided to The Sunday Times, Ahmed said: ‘Christianity remains the cornerstone of our output and there are more hours dedicated to it than there are to other faiths.

‘Our output in this area is not static, though. It has evolved over the years and we regularly assess it.’

As it stands, religious programming across the BBC includes the likes of Songs of Praise, Sunday Morning Live and The Life of Muhammad on television. Moral Maze, Beyond Belief and Thought for the Day feature on radio.

When quizzed on whether the aim of increasing non-Christian output would come at the detriment of Christian shows, a spokesperson said: ‘Christianity remains the cornerstone of our output and the BBC is committed to delivering a range of content that both reflects, celebrates and challenges religion and ethics across BBC TV, radio and online.’

‘We are intending to do more programming around Christianity and more on other faiths as well, so there is absolutely no question of an “either or” on our output.’

Muslim critics have suggested that the BBC could televise Friday prayers, cover Eid or show children attending madrasahs to boost their Islamic serving.

Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, admitted he was wary about any such changes.

He commented: ‘There is a real feeling by Christians of being let down by the Establishment.

‘Christianity is fighting for its life in western countries.’

  1. Just over a year ago, Ahmed was due to be relieved of his post.
    So, how come he has managed this Houdini act, escaping the axe, to come back more powerful than ever?
    What does he have over the BBC management that no-one else wants us to know?

  2. With more muslim propaganda on TV by design, there will be less need for muslims to carry out acts of terror as a proof that islam is a religion of peace.

  4. Then, we must also have programs for Jews, Buddhists, Shintos, pagans and headhunters. (Hey, fair is fair.) This is just another way to undermine the Western societies that they have already infiltrated.

  5. I don’t hear the Sikhs or Hindus complaining, only the Muslims who see any and all exposure as a way of bringing us back into the original state of Islam ‘we wuz dudded’ from back in the 16th century at the Battle or Tours.

  6. “Muslim critics have suggested that the BBC could televise Friday prayers, cover Eid or show children attending madrasahs to boost their Islamic serving.” – How about chapters from a Hadith, say Sahih Bukhari, Chapter 6, “Menstrual Periods.” You know, something that conveys the real character of Muhammad and Islam. The Quran’s chapter 2, The Cow is interesting too. How bout an episode from that in which Allah turns some Jews into apes and pigs?

    “As it stands, religious programming across the BBC includes the likes of Songs of Praise, Sunday Morning Live and The Life of Muhammad on television.” – So, are there any episodes of the latter depicting him marrying 9-year-old Aisha, or about when he orders someone killed, like Fartana the slave girl, who insults him with her poetry ? How about some depictions of Muhammad committing terror a la Quran 8:12 to inspire some of those budding UK Jihadis?

    The BBC could intersperse episodes like that with video of Friday Prayers so that viewers never forget that Islam is a “religion of peace.”

    “Muslim critics have suggested that the BBC could televise Friday prayers, cover Eid” – How bout televising Eid al-Adha, describing it as an example of Muslims’ celebration of slaughter?

    “Aaqil Ahmed, the broadcaster’s head of religion and ethics” – Islam, as ethical as Muhammad.

    The Mail Online and the BBC are part of the establishment media that continue to promote and document the increasing British dhimmitude.

    • … Or broadcast the completely silent “prayer” session where muslims failed to find a single verse in the koran saying that *allah* has any love or compassion for non-muslims.

  7. Monsters doing murder and deceit just the same as the NAZI and calling it obedience to God as an insult to God. Tearing life from children and saying God wants child murder. Fools that invite fascism in because it is in the sheeps clothing of religion! Horror is following and slavery is the result for the citizens of nations allowing it. Islam is fascism disguised as religion.
