Radio 4’s Face the Facts series has just broadcast a short 23-minute programme about Islamophobia. It looked at inflammatory news reports about Muslims in the UK media and the role of the Press Complaints Commission in dealing with many complaints about media coverage. I was interviewed regarding the Daily Express’s coverage of a story involving me. In 2008, the Express was forced to apologise to me and pay damages (which certainly helped with the mortgage!) and costs after I successfully sued the vile paper.
The Radio 4 programme on Islamophobia should be available to listen to again for seven days on the BBC I-Player shortly.
Update: The Radio 4 Face The Facts programme on Islamophobia is now available to listen to on BBC I-Player here.
