BBC religious output is ‘too Christian’, according to internal report

Aaqil Ahmed, the BBC’s head of religion and ethics, has written a report on the corporation’s religious programming for director general Lord Hall

An internal review of the BBC has concluded that the corporation’s religious output is too weighted in favor of Christianity.

A report by Aaqil Ahmed, the BBC’s head of religion and ethics, suggests that more airtime be given to programming focused on Muslim, Hindu and Sikh faiths.

According to the Sunday Times, Ahmed told a Commons meeting on religious literacy that he had written a report for the BBC’s director-general Lord Hall in response to criticism from non-Christian faiths that they were under-represented.

In a statement, Ahmed said that Christianity remains a “cornerstone” of the corporation’s output and “there are more hours dedicated to it than there are to other faiths”.

“Our output in this area is not static, though,” he added.

“It has evolved over the years and we regularly assess it. We do look at the number of hours we produce, and measure that against the religious make-up of society.”

    The situation is quite easily addressed. It requires only that the offended parties move to those regions and/or nations where their own religious devotions are more prominently featured on TV. Iran, North Korea, India, Iraq, China, etc. This should make them happy. I know it would please me and countless others immensely.
