Muslim comedy sparks 185 complaints to the BBC
[link to www.bbc.co.uk]

The BBC has been accused of stereotyping Muslims in its new sitcom, Citizen Khan.

The broadcaster has received 185 complaints since the first episode aired on BBC One on Monday, with some claiming it was a "tasteless depiction of Islam".

Complaints have risen overnight, however, the BBC said it has evidence of a lobbying campaign.

The six-part series follows a Muslim community worker in Birmingham.

It was created by British Muslim, Adil Ray, who also stars in the show.

Other members of the cast include My Family star Kris Marshall as a mosque manager and Shobu Kapoor, who played Gita in EastEnders, as Mrs Khan.
"Insulting"

The media watchdog, Ofcom, said it received in the region of 20 complaints about the programme.

One viewer who complained to the BBC said the show "insulted" and "ridiculed" Islam.

"We feel though as if this show has crossed the line and we expected a comedy show but now we have witnessed a mocking show," said the viewer.

Another wrote that the content was "bigoted" and "offensive".

It is good to change the stereotyped image of Muslims always being serious and shouting that has appeared so often in the media”

Yousuf Bhailok Former Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain

But others, commenting on a BBC messageboard following Monday night's broadcast defended the show.

Referring to a scene in which a teenage daughter hastily changed her attire before her father entered the room, one said: "People are reading too much into Citizen Khan, especially the hijab thing, it happens!"

Comedian Humza Arshad, star of the hit internet comedy Diary of a Badman, told the BBC's Asian Network that he felt some of the jokes went "a bit too far".

"I wasn't offended but I think some other people might be. For example, the scene with the Quran. Personally I'd play it safe. Some people might complain about it - I've got similar feedback myself by the audience, the Muslim community is one of the most sensitive communities out there."

Former Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain, Yousuf Bhailok said the show was "the best thing the BBC has done recently".

"It is good to change the stereotyped image of Muslims always being serious and shouting that has appeared so often in the media," he said.

"There is great humour among Muslims. I am glad it has been made....50% article at link.

Correction, the "comedy" in Britain these days is utter shit.

The older stuff is gold, pure gold.

Remember when the BBC used to make such awesome shows like 'One Foot in the Grave' and 'Keeping Up Appearances'?

Nowadays it's stuff like 'Slagwhore and Fatguts'.

** Also, thanks for the pin :D **

You can't poke fun at any race or religion or you will be fired from your job, shunned from the community and labeled as a racist. The only time this is okay is when it's directed towards a white Christian then that's okay.

Re: Muslim comedy sparks 185 complaints to the BBC
Considering how many muslims are in Brimingham and how many watched the show, thats not a lot of complains. Next episode even they would stop complaining and its a great way to lossen them up.

Back in their own countries islam and muslims are made fun of 24/7. In pakistan where I'm from our media makes fun of imams all the time. Every show has an imam issuing fatwas left and right and people laughing their guts out. Its just hilarious!

Sanitize? It is a perfectly normal monotheistic religion , no better and no worse than any other.....to say otherwise is ridiculous and bigoted since plenty of examples can be dredged up about the other two.
