Apr 27, 2016 by

By Jenny Taylor, Lapido Media: There are indications that media producers are getting on the religious literacy bandwagon. Two documentaries about The Deobandis for BBC Radio 4 are to be applauded; Trevor Phillips’ documentary What Muslims Really Think for Channel 4 in the same week less so. But they both mark the most serious attempts in the media yet to grasp what’s wrong with multiculturalism.
