Ofcom warn TV channel over broadcasts calling Jews a 'cursed race'
by Simon Rocker
An Islamic TV channel has been warned by the broadcasting standards regulator Ofcom that it faces sanctions after showing antisemitic lectures by a preacher who called Jews a "cursed race".
Peace TV Urdu was found in breach of TV standards for broadcasting two recorded lecturers by the late Dr Israr Ahmad in September last year.
The overall effect would have been to "promote highly negative antisemitic stereotypes about and attitudes towards Jewish people," Ofcom stated in its decision today.
