MSM radicalises Muslims
From the BBC:
A company called Ethnic Focus regularly surveys ethnic minorities and advises public bodies - including the police - about how to communicate with particular communities.You know, like the BBC.
Saber Khan, its research director, says that while digital TV is popular among Asians there are clear differences between the generations.
"Forty per cent of Asians are under 25 and that basically means you are talking about second and third generation people. According to our regular surveys, they are overwhelmingly consumers of mainstream news - mainstream newspapers and TV."
This view is supported by Dr Yunas Samad, a senior lecturer in sociology at Bradford University, who has also studied the relationship between British Pakistanis and the media.
But he says the fact that younger Muslims now watch the mainstream channels doesn't stop them getting radical ideas.
"One of the things we kept trying to ask was 'Where did you get these kinds of views that actually mobilised you?' and they came back and said 'We just watch the TV, we just watch mainstream media'.
