Preachers of hate who spread their violent word on British TV channels
by David Barrett and Ben Leach
Muslim fundamentalists have used British television channels to preach in favour of violent crime and killing "apostates".
The communications watchdog, Ofcom, has made a series of rulings against channels which allowed "inflammatory" material to be broadcast in breach of rules which forbid extreme opinions gaining a platform on British television.
The cases, disclosed today, include examples of an imam telling viewers that those who disrespect the prophet Mohammed should be killed, and another broadcaster saying homosexuals should be beaten and tortured.
