IMAMS’ IM­MU­NITY

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

It should be pointed out that whilst the po­lice tried to pros­e­cute Chan­nel 4 for broad­cast­ing al­leged in­flam­ma­tory re­marks by imams ( JC, May 23), there was no at­tempt to pros­e­cute the BBC for broad­cast­ing al­legedly in­flam­ma­tory re­marks by BNP leader Nick Grif­fin in The Se­cret Agent.

Pre­sum­ably, pros­e­cut­ing Grif­fin was seen as de­sir­able by the gov­ern­ment, whereas sim­i­lar treat­ment of imams was seen as po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect, so they went for the mes­sen­ger in­stead.
