Shelagh Explains To Man Why People Are Free To Mock Islam In Britain

A devout muslim could not accept that it's ok to mock Islam, Shelagh patiently explains to him why in modern Britain that is wrong.

During a discussion about why we tend to poke fun at Islam less than other religions like Christianity and Judaism, Fabbar, a muslim from Toulouse, France, called in to say it was never acceptable to mock his religion.

"It doesn't mean because you are able to mock Christianity it's OK to mock Judaism or Islam. All of that is wrong." He said.

Shelagh pointed out that just because these views were deeply held to him they weren't deeply held amongst all people, and that in Britain it is agreed that religion is not beyond criticism or mockery.

"I'm not justifying mocking Islam I'm trying to get you to understand that what you say is deeply against the Qur'an and your religion, in Britain, it is deeply against a lot of people's strongly held views is being told that they cannot say certain things which are in fact in this country legal."
