BBC Says Opposing Shariah Law Is ‘Islamophobic’

The British Broadcasting Service (BBC) – a public broadcaster funded by a “TV licence” fee forced on UK television owners – has declared that resistance to Shariah law is “Islamophobic”. According to a news clip, BBC online coverage, and the comments of its reporter Catrin Nye, a man called “Paul” approached a BBC film crew while recording an interview with Islam campaigner Ruqaiya Haris. Ms. Haris, a Muslim activist and student at the School of Oriental and African Studies, is told by Paul, “There’s no Sharia law here”. Her and Ms. Nye’s reactions to the statement made freely in a public place are nothing short of hysterical. The clip opens with Ms. Haris openly stating that she doesn’t believe in condemning recent terror attacks. Her voice, solemn and almost bored, changes immediately when the man known as Paul confronts us. A man interrupts an interview I'm doing about Islamophobia…with Islamophobia. My new story on rising Twitter abuse — Catrin Nye (@CatrinNye) August 18, 2016 Ms. Haris bolts up from her interview on a park bench as Ms. Nye glares in a disgusted manner at the man. “Do you wanna talk about Shariah law, you wanna talk about Shariah law to me?”
