Ben Elton: BBC scared of Islam jokes
by Sophie Borland
The BBC is too scared to make jokes about Islam, the comedian Ben Elton has claimed.
Elton, who is also a scriptwriter and author, accused the corporation of being too concerned with political correctness for not allowing jokes about imams but allowing ones vicars.
He said: "I think it all starts with people nodding whenever anyone says 'As a person of faith...'
"And I believe that part of it is due to the genuine fear that the authorities and the communities have about provoking the radical elements of Islam.
