BBC defends Panorama’s Muslim film

The BBC has received 250 complaints about Sunday’s controversial Panorama documentary on the challenges faced by the Muslim community in the wake of the July 7 bombings, which was yesterday labelled “a complete travesty” by the Muslim Council of Britain.

The lobby group said yesterday that it planned to send a formal letter of complaint to the BBC director general, Mark Thompson, calling the programme “deeply dishonest”.
