BBC accused of pro-Muslim bias
The Independent reports today that the BBC is biased towards the Muslim religion. The newspaper reported that since 2001 the BBC had made 41 faith programmes on Islam, compared with just five on Hinduism and one on Sikhism. Figures for other religions and atheism weren't revealed. "We are licence-fee payers and we want to know why this has happened," said Ashish Joshi from the Network of Sikh Organisations. The BBC denied any bias and said it was committed to representing all of Britain's faiths and communities.
