An internal review of the BBC has concluded that the corporation’s religious output is too weighted in favour of Christianity.

A report by Aaqil Ahmed, the BBC’s head of religion and ethics, suggests that more airtime be given to programming focussed on Muslim, Hindu and Sikh faiths.

According to the Sunday Times, Ahmed told a Commons meeting on religious literacy that he had written a report for the BBC’s director-general Lord Hall in response to criticism from non-Christian faiths that they were under-represented.
