The UK Sun, reports that the BBC has caved in and is junking an already filmed episode of a hit series for fear of offending Muslims — because an al Qaeda terrorist is shot dead:
a �1million episode of hit drama Spooks in which an al—Qaeda terrorist is shot dead — in case it upsets Muslims.
Filming the assassination plot for the MI5 drama took four weeks.
But actor Shaun Dingwall who plays a renegade Christian gunman, fears he could become a target for fundamentalists if the scene is aired.
In the episode, due to be shown later this year, a religious nut played by Shaun, 35, guns down the fanatic on the steps of London's High Court.
But production sources admitted it could be canned. One said: 'In the climate of Muslim fury over cartoons, Shaun isn't sure about it all.'
Notice that nobody at the BBC seems to be the least concerned about offending Christians by portraying a fanatical, crazed, murderous Christian.
