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.
“There is no doubt about it, the BBC will let vicar gags pass but they would not let imam gags pass.”
……A BBC spokesman said: “No subject is off limits for BBC comedy. The treatment should not cause harm or offence as defined by the BBC’s Editorial Guidelines or breach other BBC Guidelines. There is no evidence that the BBC is afraid to tackle difficult subjects.”
Apparently, the BBC is not afraid to collaborate with terrorists, either.
