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.
