Why on earth is Citizen Khan on an ‘Islamophobia awards’ list?

It is meant to be a tongue in cheek attempt to highlight Islamophobia but is the inclusion of a comedy TV programme a step too far?

Organisers of the annual Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) Islamophobia awards held in London rolled out a familiar list of individuals and organisations on their ‘shortlist’.

Among them was Charlie Hebdo, the satirical French magazine that organisers said ‘had made a name for itself by inciting hatred against Muslims by stereotyping them and lampooning their beliefs’.

It may have something to do with the fact that Islam is a joyless cult that knows only misery.

    Who is the tramp in the provocative pink hijab? And the ape in the suit? I thought “Little Mosque on the Prairie” was truly a ghastly concept and couldn’t bear to watch 30 seconds of it! And now, thanks to the BBC of the United Kaliphate (UK) we have “Citizen Khan”?

    Yikes! I’d rather watch the Addams Family!

      Or the scary one in the green one in the back, she looks like she would gladly down a vest to take out some infidels.

    Calling this show a comedy is a joke in itself. It’s utterly unfunny.
