- censorship, Channel 4, Islam, The Untold Story
I have just posted a statement by the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain in support of Tom Holland’s documentary “Islam: The Untold Story”.
Channel 4 has just cancelled a repeat screening due to threats.
Here’s my question to Channel 4: what about the threats on our lives for being apostates, ex-Muslims, atheists, freethinkers, secularists, 21st century human beings?
What part of our thoughts, lives, bodies do you recommend we cancel to appease the Islamists?
If only there was such an ‘easy’ ‘solution’ for those who are languishing under Islam’s rules – like Afghan actors facing death threats or the 16 year old girl waiting to be flogged in the Maldives?
You may accept censorship and cowardly silence in the face of Islamist threats and intimidation but we cannot afford to do so.
And we never will.
