Sikhs and Hindus object to BBC pro-Muslim bias

And, moreover, they find it painfully obvious that the state broadcasting company is ‘pandering to Britain's Muslim community by making a disproportionate number of programmes on Islam at the expense of covering other Asian religions’. It is, they say ‘BBC policy’.

Research establishes that over the past seven years, the BBC has made 41 programmes on Islam, compared with five on Hinduism and just one on Sikhism. The Buddhists and Jedi Knights must feel profoundly short-changed.

According to The Independent, this disproportionate focus on Islam is ‘part of an apparent bias within the BBC towards Islam since the attacks of 11 September 2001, which has placed an often uncomfortable media spotlight on Britain's Muslims’.

Apparent bias?

The Christians have been saying this for years. The BBC has said it would be content to consign the Bible to Room 101 but not the Qur’an, and there are numerous instances of the denigration of the name of Jesus but not that of Mohammed; scorn being poured over the declining Church of England but not the ascending Mosque of England; and the incessant questioning to the point of ridicule of the foundational tenets of Christianity (frequently during Christmas or Easter), while the claims of Islam are treated with reverence and submission (especially during Ramadan and Eid).

Of course Hindu and Sikh licence-fee payers should feel cheated.

But there is a very simple remedy. If a few more Sikhs were to become as militant as those who forced the closure of a theatre in Birmingham; and a few Hindus became as militant as their co-religionists in Orissa, the BBC would feel obliged to redress the imbalance.

The reality is that Sikhs and Hindus are relatively boring, and the BBC is concerned with viewing figures. The Christians, of course, are always good for a laugh, so The Decline and Fall of the Church of England has become the sitcom of religious broadcasting.

But the BBC is the primary source of news for millions, with considerable influence over the formation of people’s worldviews. It has been admitted that there is a disproportionate number of homosexuals who work within its edifice, and it is unsurprising, though a manifest contradiction, that a culture of liberalism has permitted a reverence for Islam to supplant that of the indigenous faith. It is now subject to those mental pathologies which are at the root of the decay of Western Europe - anti-Americanism, anti-Christianity and anti-Semitism. Its anti-Israel reporting and the white-washing of Muslim/Arab jihadic pursuits permit the Islamist agenda to proceed apace.

Cranmer is fed-up of paying for this hideous propaganda narrative which is inimical to all that he believes and holds dear. The BBC needs reforming, and Cranmer prays for a broadcasting Martin Luther to pin his 95 theses to the door of Broadcasting House.

Are your Grace's communicants aware that there is a website devoted to the licence-jizya funded taqiyya disseminated by al-Beeb?

Your Grace, the BBC is beyond reform. The only way to deal with it is to apply Sean Gabb's prescription.

No negotiation, no warning: just do it, all in one go.

And while we're at it, it would be nice, as Sean Gabb says, to see how long the Guardian would last without it's daily state subsidy for the advertising of government sinecures.

How about this for a perfect example of Liberl Left Logic.

Faith schools breed terrorism, claims psychologist, screams the Guardian.

>>>British faith schools are inadvertently priming hundreds of young minds for recruitment as suicide bombers. That is the controversial claim of Prof David Cater, a psychologist at the University of Liverpool who has produced a psychological study of 49 failed suicide bombers.<<<

Well how Pro Carter or the Guardian choose to declare faith schools as the problem, when you have plenty of faiths running different schools, the problems seems to be Islam from a scientific deductive point of view.

Also reported by the Indie, and you would have thought such a report would certianly appear on the Blessed Beed? try searching.

The liberal left live in thier own sweet world. If its a chance to spin how terible faith schools are, Great, if the implications are that the self styled religion of peace are getting a bad press...then leave well alone.

astonishingly discusting.

Your Grave would be astounded to learn that the B.B.C. to my mind is an ocean of neutrality towards the Islamic world and the United States of America when compared to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (C.B.C.) or TVOntario (T.V.O.).

As recent evidence of this bias the following example should prove instructive. On September 9, as part of 3 nights of programming in commemoration of the 9/11 attacks, the flagship current affairs program on TVOntario, the Agenda had as its topic, 9/11 Physical Evidence which dealt with conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11. Two panelists from Canada (including a retired regligious studies professor) argued that it was a conspiracy by the United States government. What is even worse is that over 70% of those who participated in an online poll believed this to be true.

Proximity to the United States does not merely breed contempt but hatred and delusions.

Will the BBC remember today’s anniversary, the Battle of Vienna on September 11, 1683, 325 years ago today? An alliance of Catholic Christian armies led by Jan III Sobieski, the King of Poland marked the turning point in the 300-year struggle between the forces of the European Christian Kingdoms and the Muslim Ottoman Hoards. Next time you hear people complain about the Poles, just remind them of King Sobieski and that while England was squabbling over who ran the country, Europe was being saved by forces loyal to the Pope.

The privatisation of the BBC and the aboliton of the licence tax must be among the first measures of the new Tory government. We can no longer stand for publicly funded (on pain of prison) treachery.

Your Grace - Ha ha! But is all the coverage of Islam on the BBC positive? Isn't it more about getting in the viewers, and covering salacious stories, as you said?

Well, if they call it the Mosque of England, they're lying as usual, aren't they? They refuse to be part 'of' the land of the English, and their false faith is neither 'of' the country or its indigenous people. They could make the 'of' come true, in a different sense, if they would take themselves and everything they represent 'out of' England. I'm sure that, under those circumstances, British broadcasting and its 'kama sutra' mentality, would once more consider the tastes of the majority of license payers.

I believe that Your Grace is right, and that the Moslem cause and its manifestation in the Beeb are both weapons for the Marxists and their agenda of deconstructing British/Western and Christian culture in the way you describe.

For the record: about 5 years ago, in America, a Subcontinental Postcolonialist asked the air around him (rather than me, the Englishwoman) why the BBC Overseas Service is so terrible, nowadays. Then, I answered that euROPE had the clampers on it-no more Freedom of Speech from Britain. Now...I don't know why he asked!

"Cranmer prays for a broadcasting Martin Luther to pin his 95 these to the door of Broadcasting House"
Amen, Amen!

To that prayer as ask for a whole campaign of thesis pinning - but out in the real world, not on the web. On the doors and gates of Parliament; on the courthouse doors; on the pub doors; on the doors of Town Halls....even on the doors of their horrible mosques; and on T-shirts, licence plates, car stickers. Anywhere - just to raise awareness and bring the heads out of the sand!!!!

Small point but "apparent bias" means obvious bias, not debatable bias, as implied.

As for the BBC, the sooner the TV tax is abolished, and all those who adore it, Muslims, Greens, and Guardianistas alike, can have the opportunity to pay to keep it going, the better for the TV-disenfranchised majority.

An excellent post. The Religion and Ethics department is up here in Manchester. They have said that they try to be inclusive, but in this pushy world those who push the most get what they want - it seems! And might tends to be right!

your grace, may i draw your attention to this article

and i quote:

"Gordon Brown and Communities Minister Hazel Blears welcomed Muslim worshippers from Regent's Park Mosque to a meeting in Downing Street to launch a huge Labour campaign to combat Islamic extremism at grassroots level following the London bombings of 2005."

"As part of this initiative-200 different organisations from 70 parts of Britain with large Muslim populations have received millions in public grants under what is officially called the Preventing Extremism Pathfinder Fund - a total of £15million a year."

in other words - instead of fighting them, we're bribing them NOT to bomb us.
