Islamic leaders in Australia want halal TV show as alternative to 'Peppa Pig'

Mike GwilliamRebel Columnist

The Australian National Imams Council aren't big fans of the UK pre-school show Peppa Pig.

According to the BBC, Barakah Hills, a "halal cartoon series", has been pitched as a Muslim alternative. It would be set in a “predominantly Muslim town”.

The production company One4Kids, which makes children's shows with Islamic themes, wants to raise money to make the show a possibility.

“The show's main objective is to show children what it is like to be a practising Muslim as well as a good citizen in their community,” the company said in a statement.

One4Kids producer Subhi Alshaik told the BBC that while he 'enjoyed' Peppa Pig, “apparently there are messages in there that turn kids into brats.”

Only 2.2% of Australians list their religion as Islam according to government statistics.

Someone forgot where they were. In Australia you do not demand you ask with reason and logic. Failure to do so earns an automatic no. As they say, you have the right to immigrate and become Australian and if that is not suitable, you have the right to leave. Right or wrong that is their attitude and they do not stray too far from the right.

I’ve watched Peppa for sometime now, great kids show. Wonder what they are going to replace Peppa with ? Jihadi Goat perhaps, or Halal Camel, whatever they decide it won’t come close to Peppa.

Their big selling point is that it will be a blast.

Erik – what they hate the most is Jews, Christians and anyone who doesn’t bow down to their idol.

I see this Islamist political pressure group are unfamiliar with the dynamics and operative nature of free markets and liberal democratic free societies.

Why do they want the state to intercede? If this bothers you, crowd fund your alternative and do it yourselves.

I see Islamists take as easily to big brother state thinking as do marxists.

Muslim’s you are in Western Countries now, You were invited because misguided Western Leaders and some members of the public felt sorry for you.

If you do not like what you see, go back to where you came from. You have been in your adoptive Countries long enough for the General Public to realize their mistake in inviting you.

NO ONE WILL MISS YOU, other than Political Leaders who kiss butt in exchange for votes. Right? Justin.
