BBC Caves to Islamic Pressure

Posted: February 19, 2006 in Media

The UK Sun, reports that the BBC has caved in and is junking an already filmed episode of a hit series for fear of offending Muslims – because an al Qaeda terrorist is shot dead:

a £1million episode of hit drama Spooks in which an al-Qaeda terrorist is shot dead — in case it upsets Muslims. Filming the assassination plot for the MI5 drama took four weeks.

But actor Shaun Dingwall who plays a renegade Christian gunman, fears he could become a target for fundamentalists if the scene is aired.

In the episode, due to be shown later this year, a religious nut played by Shaun, 35, guns down the fanatic on the steps of London’s High Court.

But production sources admitted it could be canned. One said: “In the climate of Muslim fury over cartoons, Shaun isn’t sure about it all.”

Notice that nobody at the BBC seems to be the least concerned about offending Christians by portraying a fanatical, crazed, murderous Christian.
