UK Channel 4 wages war against Islam

UK Channel 4 has engaged in a direct war against Islam by airing a documentary which distorts the reality of the glorious Faith.


Over 1000 complaints have been made to the channel and another 200 to the UK media regulator Ofcom over a documentary about the origins of Islam.

By way of avoiding an investigation into the matter, an Ofcom spokesman has said, "We will assess them and if we believe there has been a possible breach of the broadcasting code, we would hold an investigation, but no decision to that effect has been taken."

Islam: The Untold Story, presented by Tom Holland, claims there is little written contemporary evidence about the origin of Islam and the life of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

As another politically-motivated attempt by followers of the English Defence League (EDL) to misrepresent the realities of Islam, the production is a mere distortion of history presented by someone with no background of religious knowledge.

Holland’s works mostly comprise vampire and adventure stories, and his non-fiction books are nothing related to religious issues or Islam.

It is, therefore, not surprising that the 44-year-old writer became the target of many criticisms by Muslim viewers who took to Twitter to vent their fury at his inaccurate claims and imaginative lies about the true divine religion.

The Islamic Education and Research Academy (IERA) also said Holland was making "baseless assumptions" and engaging in "selective scholarship".

"Holland has cherry picked from evidence as well as scholarship to take an unsubstantiated and marginalized view on the origins of Islam,” the IERA said.

"He saw what he wanted to see and rejected recklessly what he didn't like. His exclusion of established academic positions and material facts points to the only conclusion of justifying his own prejudices and ignorance of Islamic tradition."
