Muslims in the UK aired a few not-so-peaceful lectures:
Ofcom began to investigate Iman FM after a listener complained that they had aired lectures encouraging violence and religious hatred during Ramadan.
Iman FM confirmed that they had broadcast 25 hours worth of lectures by the American Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
The regulators concluded that parts of al-Awlaki's lectures amounted to a "direct call to action to members of the Muslim community to prepare for and carry out violent action against non-Muslim people".
Can you blame the "moderate" Muslims who aired his lectures? How were they supposed to know that this al-Awlaki guy wants the ummah to slaughter non-Muslims?
Ofcom concluded that they had "serious concerns" about Iman FM's decision to give a platform to a "widely-known terrorist leader an al-Qaeda recruiter".
Al-Awlaki was designated a global terroritst by the US government in 2010 and was placed on the UN Security Council Resolution's list of individuals associated with al-Qaeda in 2011.
