Shocka! TV call to prayer during Muslim holy month of Ramadan topped complaints for Brit Channel 4 last year

Channel’s 4 broadcasting of the Muslim call to prayer during the holy month of Ramadan was the broadcaster’s most-complained about programme last year.

It received 2,011 complaints about its 4Ramadan season with 1,658 specifically about the broadcast of the daily call to prayer.

Writing in the broadcaster’s annual report, Channel 4’s head of factual Ralph Lee said: ‘The level of Islamophobia we encountered with the 4Ramadan season was unexpected, though much of it came from communities that were either very polarised or very un-diverse.’

Not me! I’m polarised by diversity!
