BBC’s Muslim head of religion reveals a Protestant work ethic
Aaqil Ahmed is friendly when we meet, but a little nervous. Understandably so. When last May the BBC announced that he would become the first Muslim head of religious programming (and the second non-Christian after the 2001 appointment of Alan Bookbinder, an avowed agnostic), it received 115 complaints.

Most, the BBC admitted, centred on the fact that Ahmed was not a Christian. A member of the Ulster Unionist Assembly called his appointment “insulting to Christians”. On hearing the news, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, reportedly complained to Mark Thompson, the Director-General of the BBC and a Roman Catholic, that the “Christian voice” was being sidelined”.

Was he surprised? “It would be naive to think that there would not be any kind of reaction,” Ahmed replies in a light northern accent. “I’m not going to lie. I found some of it bizarre and personally distasteful, but I ...

One thing that I do feel sorry for our British cousins is that they are taxed and by a significant tax, to support the BBC. The BBC is never a place to learn about religion since I don't think this fellow will ever put on a program that will really point to the Inadequacy of Islam. Long before this fellow got this job, the BBC has been anti-semitic, just a past example, BBC Questions Israel's Legitimacy. I suppose with fellow one has to, "Don't judge the Muslims that you know by Islam and don't judge Islam by the Muslims that you know."
