The Board of Deputies of British Jews and Tell MAMA have called for a line offensive to Muslims and Jews to be deleted from a BBC story about a racist attack against Muslim girls in Poland to learn about the Holocaust.
Marie van der Zyl, Vice-President, Board of Deputies of British Jews and Tell MAMA founder Fiyaz Mughal, said: “In a story about Muslim schoolgirls suffering racism as they learn about the Holocaust, why have the BBC included the gratuitous line – offensive to both Muslims and Jews – that ‘the Holocaust is a sensitive topic for many Muslims’? Together, we call on the BBC to delete the offending passage and apologise.”
