So says a report by Aaqil Ahmed, the BBC’s head of religion and ethics. It is no surprise that Aaqil Ahmed would have come to this conclusion, and it will be no surprise when Lord Hall, the BBC’s director general, adopts his recommendation. Britain is in full surrender and appeasement mode, and this is just one of many, many demands that will be forthcoming.
Meanwhile, the idea that the viciously anti-Christian and anti-Western BBC is “too Christian” is ridiculous, but watch for an even more pronounced bias in favor of Islamic supremacists on the BBC than what already is regularly featured there.
“BBC is ‘too Christian’ and ‘could broadcast Muslim prayers’ to reflect growing multi-culturalism,” by David Barrett, Telegraph, May 15, 2016:
The BBC’s religious output is too Christian, an internal review by the Corporation has concluded, opening the way for more programmes on other faiths.
A report by Aaqil Ahmed, the BBC’s head of religion and ethics, has suggested Muslim, Hindu and Sikh faiths should get more airtime.
One Muslim leader suggested the review could lead to Friday prayers from a mosque being broadcast in the same way that Christian church services currently feature in the BBC’s schedules.
The report is now being considered by Lord Hall, the director general, who could make changes to make religious output less “disproportionate”, the Sunday Times (£) reported.
Mr Ahmed told a Commons meeting on religious literacy he had written a report for Lord Hall that would answer criticisms from non-Christian faiths that they were under-served.
Mr Ahmed said in a statement: “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.”
He added: “We do look at the number of hours we produce, and measure that against the religious make-up of society.”
The number of Muslims in Britain has doubled in a decade to three million.
Ibrahim Mogra, of the Muslim Council of Britain, said the BBC could televise Friday prayers from a mosque and extend coverage of Eid….
