Complain to BBC about Panorama programme – FOSIS

John Ware’s Panorama programme “A Question of Leadership” aired Sunday night on BBC1 smeared respected Muslim organisations and leaders in Britain. FOSIS President Wakkas Khan said today:

“The programme has been a stain on the BBC’s record for fairness and impartiality. The producers have acted irresponsibly in its usage of quotations and editing. John Ware carelessly calls for Muslims to deny their right to engage in mainstream society. Islam is not only personal and spiritual in its nature but it also advocates justice and promotion of good through a strong political identity. It seems that to qualify as so-called ‘moderates’ Muslims are required to remain silent about oppression around the world; otherwise they are labelled as ‘extremists’.”
