Channel 4 defends decision to air Islamic call to prayer throughout Ramadan
Channel 4 executive Ralph Lee has strongly defended the decision to air the Islamic call to prayer (adhan) throughout Ramadan.
The head of factual programming insisted that the broadcast fulfils part of the channel's remit to give a "voice to the under-represented" - but also recognises a religion that is "flourishing".
Writing in the Radio Times, Lee said: "No doubt Channel 4 will be criticised for focusing attention on a 'minority' religion but that's what we're here to do – provide space for the alternative and a voice to the under-represented.
