Sounds like an islamophobic fine.
The call for the slaughter of critics of Islam is in accordance with the sharia. Obama say, "respect it!" Major Hasan say, "respect it!" Anwar Awlaki say, "respect it!" CAIR say, "respect it!" The British government say, "respect it or we'll ban you!"
Islamic TV channel fined £85,000 by watchdog for broadcasting hate preacher's saying it was 'acceptable to murder anyone who disrespected Mohammed' The Daily Mail, August 21, 2013
- Allama Muhammad Farooq Nizami told viewers live on-air that those who caused offence to the Prophet 'should be eliminated'
- The channel could have been fined up to £250,000 but regulator opted to protect their 'freedom of expression'
- Broadcaster remains unrepentant and have since broadcast a 'clarification' instead of an apology
An Islamic TV channel has been fined £85,000 after it broadcast a hate preacher to instructing muslims to kill those who insult Prophet Mohammed live on live television.
Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom reprimanded Al Ehya Digital Televison, which runs the Islamic channel Noor TV for allowing its presenter to tell viewers it was their duty to murder non-Muslims during a phone in show.
The channel broadcasts both in the UK and internationally mostly in Urdu but also English and Punjabi and is aimed at young British Muslims.

Offensive: Allama Muhammad Farooq Nizami told viewers that it was their 'mission' to 'protect the sanctity of our beloved Lord' The offending show was broadcast on May 3 last year and featured the presenter Allama Muhammad Farooq Nizami taking phone-in from audience members around the world.
Mr Nizami answered questions about a wide range of issues and personal conduct relating to Islam and Islamic teachings.
But following a question from a Pakistani caller asking what the 'punishment' should be for those who disrespect the Prophet, his answer was that they 'should be eliminated.'
Speaking directly into the camera Mr Nazimi said: 'One has to choose one’s own method.
'Our way is the peaceful way but when someone crosses the limits, faith-based emotions are instigated...The mission of our life is to protect the sanctity of our beloved Lord.
'May Allah accept us wherever there is a need [to kill a blasphemer]. We are ready and should be ready at all times [to kill a blasphemer]'
The regulator judged that these comments were 'likely to encourage or incite the commission of crime or to lead to disorder.'
It also said it was concerned that young people watching the show could become 'radicalised' or take 'violent and criminal action as a result of watching videos of Muslims with extreme views.'
It considered the remarks to be so inflammatory they could have inspired a repeat of the murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gough, who was killed after Islamic clerics condemned his film which criticised the treatment of Muslim women.Read the rest here
