BBC slammed over IS sympathiser's role on show about British Muslims
by Martin Bentham
The BBC was today accused of "totally inappropriate" conduct over its decision to feature a notorious extremist who has expressed support for Islamic State beheadings in a new programme on British Muslims to be broadcast next week.
Anthony Small, 35, a former boxer and associate of jailed extremist cleric Anjem Choudary, will appear as one of 10 housemates in a documentary called Muslims Like Us showing over two nights on BBC2.
The corporation has described the programme — likened to a Muslim version of Big Brother — as a "social experiment" to display facets of the religion's British followers.
