Seen this?

The BBC has appointed a second Muslim executive to be in charge of religious television programming after attracting criticism previously from those who thought the job should go to a Christian.

Gosh. I never seen that one coming…

The corporation has appointed Fatima Salaria, a BBC editor who commissioned Muslims Like Us, a reality-style show, and a series of programmes about radicalisation.

She attracted criticism last year by giving Anthony Small, the convicted fraudster and former boxing champion a platform on Muslims Like Us. Small, now known as Abdul Haqq, was a member of the inner circle of Anjem Choudary, the hate preacher. He had previously expressed support for Islamic State but was cleared in 2015 of trying to join the jihadist group.

The BBC seems determined to ensure that a Muslim oversees its “religious programming” output.

Here are a few retweets from Fatima. Her account is now protected. Shouldn’t the BBC investigate?

    Another good reason not to pay the licence fee.

      They really are spitting in the faces of the British people now.

      As a ‘public service’, the Beeb is an utter disgrace, and deserves no more than profound vitriol from the very people who have to fund their extravagances and morally bankrupt behaviour.

      The bad news they spurt is getting the goat of a lot more people now, and it’s much easier to mention what liars they are to friends who otherwise would never have dreamed of doubting the broadcasts.


      • Grant says:


        I am getting a similar response. Friends say ” I see what you mean now “. Naturally, people are reluctant to admit they have been wrong in the past , but it is heartening.


    • Mice Height says:

      Everyone should stop funding BBC employee’s Fatima Salarias . . . .


      • Grant says:


        Is that her real name or did she change it after she got the job ?


        • Grant says:

          Looking at the statistics, the likely muslim population of the UK is 5-10 %. On the BBC , it seems closer to 50% . How can they justify another muslim Head of Religion from such a minority religion ? And the only one which can be described as evil.


          • GCooper says:

            I’m not sure about the ‘only’ bit, Grant. I’d rather not live next door to a Voodoo or Santeria temple! Nor Scientologists, come to that.

            Of course, I completely agree about the absurd fawning over Islam on the part of the BBC and other far Left media outlets. It’s part of the Gramscian destabilisation process to take anything that is inimical to Western civilisation and revere it.


        • Mice Height says:

          What’s “Underworked, Overpaid” in Urdu?


          • Grant says:


            Don’t know about Urdu, but in a similar language, in the beautiful Turkish language it could be “Yetersiz calisilan, yetersiz odeme “. Sorry to be too lazy to switch to Turkish keyboard .


            • Grant says:

              Amusingly , in Turkish ” Yeter ” means “enough “. Maybe we should say ” Yeter BBC, Yeter ” !!


        • Oaknash says:

          Grant real name = Fatiam Salary or just Fatty to her friends!


          • worrywort says:

            Her Friends call her Fat Salary. Her real name is Fatwah Salami.
            Death to pork sausages.


        • NCBBC says:

          The BBC couldn’t find a transgendered or lesbian Muslim?

          This is unfair discrimination.


  2. Scronker says:

    Why not appoint a Scientologist for a change? Its popular with Hollywood celebtards.


  3. G.W.F. says:

    The BBC would not be so blatant in their promotion of Islam were it not for the Prime Minister.
    The rot within the BBC will only be removed when the British people remove the Prime Minister and fellow travelling members of her party



    • Grant says:


      Spot on. That statement sums up Treezer. Either very stupid or very dishonest or both. A worthless creature.


      • RJ says:

        She’s a politician. There are now 3 million muslims in the UK and the Conservatives need those 6 million postal votes.


        • Grant says:


          But does she really think that will sway muslim voters ?


          • Fred Basset says:

            Waste of time, the Imam will vote for all (twice) and there is no chance of any votes going to the Conservatives.


            • Grant says:


              And Treezer is so stupid she does not think that she may lose more votes than she gains. How did such a thicko become PM ?


    • Wiser Monkeys says:

      Islam is entirely INCOMPATIBLE with British values and our national way of life.
      According to what MUSLIMS say themselves. Look how opinion data from Muslims in the UK scales up over their whole population …


      Full data at: http://wisermonkeys.uk/islam/ukopinion.html


      • Grant says:


        I posted above before I read your post. Sorry but our esteemed PM disagrees. So she disagrees with the majority of muslims. She is so frigging stupid that she does not realise that her statement is an insult to muslims. That woman is brain dead.


  4. quisquose says:

    If one was to assume that 5% of the population is Muslim, then it would be fair to expect that 5% of BBC staff are Muslim. There should be a 1/20 chance of any position being occupied by a Muslim, so in isolation one cannot not get too concerned about the BBC appointing a Muslim as the head of religious programming.

    But the chances of two Muslims being put in charge of the same job sequentially, all things being equal? Well that would be 1 in 400.

    Now would be the time to correctly conclude that the BBC is biased and we are being played for mugs.

      Not according to the BBC’s reading of the Koran.


  5. Alicia Sinclair says:

    After years of neglect and contempt for the Christian faith-and its wilful stupidity in backing any anti-Israel cause-is there anybody out there who could give me an alternative “Head of Dhimmi” to our Muslimah here.
    No point getting at Islam here-basically they`re only picking up the £100 note that nobody in the “Christian Western Church as known to the BBC” would stop or bother their arses to pick up gratis.
    Peter Mullen and Michael Nazir Ali were the end of the line-you`re now stuck with Giles Fraser and that Catholic Brummie….Adrian Childs…THAT`S The bloke.
    Trump prayed on his mums bible-maybe we need to find OUR mums bibles and pray as well.


  6. Deborahanother says:

    Not surprising from the BEEB.Their bias is truly out in the open.I blame the Anglican Church too .We seem to have religious leaders who don’t believe in anything and think they are glorified social workers.So a supposedly Christian country lacks any spiritual guidance leaving a gap in the market the BBC is only to happy to exploit.

    Justin Welby should be taking the BBC to task for this but knowing him he probably welcomes it.No wonder the churches are empty.


  7. Lucy Pevensey says:

    I know we call them Dhimmis and will continue to do so but in all seriousness our leaders are worse than that. Dhimmis pay the jizya tax because their lives are under threat. Their Christian and/or Jewish heritage means something to them. Dhimmis are willing to pay in order to remain Non-Muslim. Our leaders don’t have their heads at stake. They are giving our culture & our children’s future away by their own free will with no resistance, no fight at all. They are smiling as they betray us & handing over even more than they are asked for, IMO much worse than a Dhimmi.


  8. Oaknash says:

    Totally agree Lucy – Regarding our political class (with just a few notable exceptions). Maybe Quislings or Judases would be nearer the mark.

    Though I personally prefer traitorous bastards!


  9. EnglandExpects says:

    Did Purnell hand pick this Muslim for the job? Is there any open competitive process for these appointments ? Come to think of it how did Purnell get his job?


  10. wisestreligion says:

    For the last 7 years the BBC Head of Religion has been Aaqil Ahmed, drawn from the 4.8% of the UK population that are Muslim. He is now replaced by Fatima Salaria, drawn from the 4.8% of the UK population that are Muslim.
    Statistically the likelihood of that happening by chance is 0.048 x 0.048 = 0.23% or one in 434.


  11. Philip_2 says:

    Do we really want someone who commissions programmes like this as head of religion for the BBC? (from ‘Voice for Justice’- this news clip is worth repeating, please sign below and complain to Karen Bradley at CMS)…
    In November last year, following complaints of unacceptable Muslim bias and the deliberate marginalization of Christianity by its Muslim Head of Religion and Ethics, Aaqil Ahmed, the BBC announced that it was axing both the role of Head and the department of religion, bringing all religious programming and coverage under the remit of former Labour MP James Purnell, the head of radio and education.

    However, on February 25, the BBC quietly announced that it had appointed another Muslim, Fatima Salaria, as its new Head of Religious Programming.

    It would seem therefore that, in clear disregard of their earlier statement, the BBC has not only resurrected this role, but appears to be operating a policy of Islamic prioritization, once again ignoring the pleas of all other religious groups in the UK for proportionate and fair representation.

    Ms Salaria’s most notable achievement since joining the BBC in 2015 would appear to have been to commission the TV reality show Muslims like Us, described in the press as ‘Muslim Big Brother’. It may be remembered that in this programme, among the ten Muslim housemates – chosen to reflect the diverse views of Muslims in the UK – was included Abdul Haqq, a Muslim convert, former boxing champion, convicted fraudster … and member of the inner circle of jailed radical cleric Anjem Choudary. But it gets worse, because Mr Haqq reportedly not only supported banned terror group Al-Muhajiroun, but was arrested in 2014 in Dover, and later charged with plotting to go to Syria to fight with Islamic State after spreading terrorist material online.

    His inclusion, put forward without comment as merely one view among many, can only have served to ‘normalise’ extremism, and is an affront to all – including moderate Muslims honestly striving to integrate into British culture.
    Do we trust her to give proportionate and fair representation to all religious groups? Do we trust the BBC? Or do we share the view of Professor Anthony Glees of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies, who told The Mail: “If a BBC executive makes a programme that is notorious and then the BBC promotes them, it tells me that the BBC has in that area lost its moral compass.” (http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/02/25/new-bbc-head-religion-gave-islamist-extremists-platform/).

    Ms Salaria is on record as saying the BBC needs to give greater voice to Muslims. It is a view that seems to have been swallowed hook, line, and sinker by dementedly ‘diverse’ Auntie, who seemingly takes every opportunity to undermine and pour derision on those who espouse the traditional Christian beliefs and values upon which our nation is founded. But exactly what voice does Ms Salaria class as authentically ‘Muslim’ and wish to be heard? After all, from the example of Abdul Haqq, she appears to have no problem supporting what the rest of us call extremism,

    It goes without saying that there is religious diversity in this country, and all faiths should receive proportionate coverage. But Christianity remains the established faith of the UK and, despite declining church attendance, according to the 2011 census Christians still make up 59.5% of the population (https://faithsurvey.co.uk/uk-christianity.html): a clear majority. Given therefore that Christianity is the main faith of this country, surely the head of religious programming should be Christian – or at the very least, as advocated by Conservative MP Bill Cash, the post should be rotated between the different faiths. Which should include Judaism, Hinduism and Sikkhism … as well as Islam.

    Please sign our new petition to the Rt Hon Karen Bradley MP, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, calling for urgent investigation into the BBC’s governance and leadership.
