Complain to BBC regarding Islamophobic Panorama documentary – IHRC

IHRC is deeply concerned at Last night’s Panorama, “A Question of Leadership”. A combination of factual errors, distortions, broad stereotypes and glaring inaccuracies shown up in the programme questions the integrity of the programme makers.

A transcript of the programme can be found at:

Whilst purporting to be an examination of the Muslim Council of Britain, the programme called into question several widely held Muslim beliefs and in particular demonised any aspiration of Muslims in whatever form if based on their religious faith. This extended from an aspiration for shariah to the wearing of jilbaab at school and integration of Muslims into mainstream society.

IHRC alert, 22 August 2005
