TALK SHOW: The Dispatches Debate: Muslims And Free Speech
On: Channel 4
Date: Monday 23rd October 2006
Time: 20:00 to 21:00
Jon Snow chairs a special Dispatches debate on whether Muslims are threatening freedom of speech in the UK. Recent events such as the protests over remarks made by the Pope about the nature of Islam; to demonstrations over the publication of Danish cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed; and to the censorship of works of art depicting holy scriptures have all raised an urgent question: whether the objections made by Muslims are legitimate reasons to prevent publication or display?
And, given the strength of those objections, are we now as a society afraid to speak out?
Jon Snow questions a series of guests who have been directly involved in these controversies.
