On 1st March, 2010, we once again witnessed the resurrection of the age old stereotypes that seem to have smuggled their way back into our minds, propagated by none other than Andrew Gilligan.
During the ‘Dispatches’ programme, which aired on Channel 4 on Monday evening, a string of false and baseless accusations about the Islamic Forum Europe (IFE), were displayed in front of us on national television. The sinister undertone of the programme insinuated that the Muslims associated with the IFE, and the East London Mosque, are a threat to the social, political and economic stability of our country.
