1. Love Thy Neighbour

Fatwa

The hidden story of the 1989 fatwa issued against Salman Rushdie - exploring the forces which led to the death sentence, the recent attack on Sir Salman and the consequences for all of us. The series covers a 20-year period from 1979 to 1999 and explores race relations in Britain, identity, free speech and the connection between the fatwa and contemporary violent jihad. This ten-part series was originally broadcast in 2019 and this episode includes strong discriminatory language.
