"A British TV channel has been fined £105,000 after it aired a live lecture by an Islamic scholar who allegedly advocated killing people who insult the prophet Muhammad. Manchester-based station DM Digital, which describes itself as Britain's most-watched Asian channel, broadcast the one-hour programme in Urdu in October 2011. The Islamic scholar can be heard telling his audience: 'I hail those who made this law [Pakistan's blasphemy law] which states that one who insults the Prophet deserves to be killed – such a person should be eliminated.' Ofcom's English-language translation of his lecture suggest he also told viewers: 'If someone takes a step in the love of the Prophet, then this is not terrorism'."
Four telling observations -
The Guardian has made unnecessary use of words like "allegedly" and "prophet".
A hundred grand really isn't going to hurt a television station very much.
The police have declined to charge journalists and producers with hate crimes.
The BBC hasn't reported this news at all (Auntie probably thinks it's our fault.)
