Radio commentator censored ‘in case’ remarks offend Muslims
Quits after being told to avoid discussion of Sikh history
The BBC tried to prevent a regulator contributor from talking about an issue “in case it caused offense to Muslims.”
The pre-emptive strike against criticism of Islam was spotlighted by Andrew Ash, a U.K.-based writer for the Gatestone Institute.
He said Lord Indarijt Singh “sensationally” has quit BBC Radio 4 after the network behaved like “thought police.”
Singh alleges the BBC tried to prevent him discussing a historical Sikh religious figure who stood up to Muslim oppression – in case it caused offense to Muslims, despite a lack of complaints,” Ash reported.
