    The BBC is too Christian in its religious output, according to an internal review, and should increase its Muslim, Hindu and Sikh programming.

    Lord Hall, the director-general, is considering findings that show there is a disproportionate amount of programming by the corporation on Christian matters compared with other faiths.

    Aaqil Ahmed, the BBC’s head of religion and ethics, told a Commons meeting on religious literacy he had written a report for Hall that would answer criticisms from non-Christian faiths that they were underserved.

    The BBC’s religious output ranges from Songs of Praise, Sunday Morning Live and The Life of Muhammad

    I disagree with this- if anything the BBC is too atheist and anti-religion in its coverage. I would welcome the return of a religious service on Sundays, recognising that sometimes there would be a service from another faith on another day to recognise the number of people of other faiths, even though Christians are the majority of people in this country.

    If a Muslim, Hindu or Sikh is better at the job then the Christian should be replaced, but if they are not then the quality of viewing will be lowered. The BBC should take on whoever is better at the job - if that makes all of their employees Christian, Sikh, Muslim, Hindu or any other religion then so be it. Although, in this case people should still be able to view programmes on their own religions- hire people that won't make it biased to their own religion of course.

    Anyway, I think the main problem is corruption and political bias.
