India TV: cooking up “hurt feelings” with PORK

Thanks to Mullah

DHIMMITUDE on steroids: the Hindu majority bows to militant headbangers who scream “feelings hurt” when pork is used in a TV cooking show. This, my dear friends, will be inevitably the case in our countries as  Mustard populations increase and their political influence grows:

New Delhi: Nation’s public broadcaster Doordarshan has courted a religious controversy after its Urdu channel aired a cooking show which taught viewers the recipe of a pork dish. Since pork is forbidden in Islam, the show drew criticism from various Islamic scholars for ‘hurting the religious sentiments’ of Muslims.

The April 9 episode of ‘Tatse Ki Baat Hai’ on DD Urdu had presented a recipe of pork dish, despite the fact that majority of channel viewers are Muslims. Commenting on the matter, DD Urdu programming executive M Sengupta evinced surprise as to how such an episode could have been aired. He further assured of a probe into the matter.
.
“An Urdu channel does not cater to Muslims alone, but it should be careful not to air a show that hurts the religious sentiments of a section of its viewers,” a teacher of Jamia Millia Islamia said.
.
A section of the community also appealed to media to exercise self-censorship so that such programmes are not broadcasted.
.
Notably, DD has one of the strictest standards for passing content before it goes on air.
.
Insiders pointed out that the error was a ‘goof-up’ and denied any ‘mischief’.

 Muslims “hurt” by cooking show featuring pork dish, network launches “investigation”

The media should practice “self-censorship.” If a large number of Muslims watch the show, then it must conform to Muslim “sensitivities,” even if non-Muslims watch the show as well. But never fear: an investigation has been launched, and the principle will be reinforced that Muslims must be accommodated, no matter what inconvenience this causes to non-Muslims.

  1. “….after its Urdu channel aired a cooking show which taught viewers the recipe of a pork dish. Since pork is forbidden in Islam, the show drew criticism from various Islamic scholars for ‘hurting the religious sentiments’ of Muslims….”

    WTF? So now they object to being reminded that pork exists and people eat it?

  2. “An Urdu channel does not cater to Muslims alone, but it should be careful not to air a show that hurts the religious sentiments of a section of its viewers,”……..this has echoes of the qantas line “Qantas in-flight catering often reflects the cultural and regional influences of the international destinations we fly to,” except those that wish to eat pork!
