BBC puts Muslim in charge of religious contentTopics: Follies of the Mainstream Media
Calling it "a "radical departure from broadcasting tradition" is to put it mildly. It is nothing less than an example of dhimmitude at the highest order.
We're talking about a Muslim who is the commissioner of "Sharia TV," which has been described by a Muslim theologian in alarming terms -
calling the show Just Another Fatwa Machine:
"We are seeing a dangerous trend in the way Islam is discussed in Britain. Those who have been engaged in the debate on the interpretation of Islam in 21st-century society see the approach being promoted by Shariah TV as extremely dangerous, leading, among other things, to a literalist approach to Islam."And to put a sharia-proselytizing Muslim in a position some call one of the most influential religious roles in the United Kingdom when Muslims make up only three percent of the country's population and nearly 70 percent claim to be Christian, is to be out of touch with reality.
He added: "By promoting a discussion based on halal (allowed) and haram (prohibited) answers, punctuated by Koranic verses, Shariah TV has become just another fatwa machine. The debate on Islam in Britain should shift from an obsession with simple black-and-white answers to a radical re-think of the method and approach adopted in producing the answers."
