“A Muslim radio station, which ordered listeners to give the advice of non-Muslim doctors ‘no importance’, has been found in breach of Ofcom rules” by a regulator. Nottingham’s Radio Dawn was determined to have breached two rules: “by broadcasting offensive comments about non-Muslims, and giving listeners potentially dangerous medical advice.”
The scholar told a caller during a broadcast on the Bobbersmill-based station: “If it is a non-Muslim doctor who is giving the advice, well their advice carries no weight. It has no importance whatsoever.”
Of course, the usual deceptive apologies went out, with assurances from Radio Dawn that they did not intend any harm; so the regulator showed some sympathy:
We acknowledged that Radio Dawn is aimed at the Muslim community and this programme offered the opportunity for members of this community to seek religious guidance from a Mufti.
The Muslim community know to “seek religious guidance from a Mufti.” This is hardly the same thing as advising the audience to “give the advice of non-Muslim doctors ‘no importance.’” The regulator was kowtowing to the Muslim community, so as not to appear to be “xenophobic,” “racist,” “Islamophobic” or “culturally insensitive.”
We recently saw a similar public display of Islamic supremacy in Canada, with an imam preaching that Muslims should buy only from other Muslims. Following a complaint and hearing by the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, the imam’s order was actually found not to be discriminatory.
Islamic supremacists view the world in two camps: the House of War verses the House of Islam. This theological indoctrination ensures that all too many Muslims never integrate, never assimilate and never adapt to Western societal principles and mores. Instead, Muslims are told that they must view infidel nations as inferior to Islamic ones, and the House of War must be brought into subjugation to the House of Islam.
“Ignore Non-Muslim Doctors, UK Islamic Radio Station Tells Listeners,” by Liam Deacon, Breitbart, December 20, 2017:
A Muslim radio station, which ordered listeners to give the advice of non-Muslim doctors “no importance”, has been found in breach of Ofcom rules.
The regulator found that Nottingham’s Radio Dawn had breached two rules: by broadcasting offensive comments about non-Muslims, and giving listeners potentially dangerous medical advice.
During a segment in the South Asian language Punjabi, a religious scholar, or “mufti”, instructed a diabetic caller not to listen to non-Mulsim doctors who advised them to avoid fasting for long periods.
“If it is a non-Muslim doctor who is giving the advice, well their advice carries no weight. It has no importance whatsoever,” he said.
“What you have to do is check who is giving the advice. A proper Muslim doctor who is religious will not give you wrong advice,” he added.
The regulator launched an investigation following a complaint, and explained in their ruling:
“In Ofcom’s view, the advice provided could clearly have led listeners with diabetes – a potentially serious health condition – to either refrain from seeking medical advice because their doctor was not a practising Muslim, or to disregard or otherwise question legitimate medical advice.”
They added that the “mufti did not make clear that he was not medically qualified.”
However, they express some sympathy with the station, insisting: “We acknowledged that Radio Dawn is aimed at the Muslim community and this programme offered the opportunity for members of this community to seek religious guidance from a Mufti.”
Secondly, the radio did not “ensure that material which may cause offence is justified by the context”.
Whilst Ofcom “acknowledged that some listeners to the programme may prefer to consult a Muslim doctor”, the segment was said to be “discriminatory and potentially offensive, not only to non-Muslim people, but also to members of the Muslim community”.
