British Muslim TV - Launching June 2014

What do you think?

Who is funding it? How many Muslim/Islamic channels are there out there?

and I notice that in the trailer, they do *slightly* better than other Muslim places at kids shows - they have a kid reading out of a book, with a torch in his hand!

(Why is the standard format for most Muslim activities meant to appeal to everyone one where everyone should sit on the floor, respectfully and quietly and simply listen?)

It looks quite good. There's plenty of religious channels but I think nowadays there's more english ones which is good for us. Though I rarely watch them tbh...

Religious TV is creepy. Not saying it is especially worse than Geordie Shore but give me David Attenborough any day.

I don't think it has to be.

But no one likes being preached to - atleast not all the time.

Just because its for a higher purpose, it doesnt mean it should be done badly, or that its all about sitting and having someone tell everyone how to live.

Probably true, that.
