Channel 4 aired a programme “Islam: The Untold Story” on Tuesday 28th August 2012 with the show presented by British historian Tom Holland, who has also published a book entitled “In the Shadow of the Sword” . A number of absurd and outrageous baseless claims have been made by Holland against Islam, a faith followed by over a billion people.
Serious debate on Islamic historiography is welcome but it must be based on historical evidence. Holland’s book In the Shadow of the Sword does not seem to be anything more than an addition to the Islamophobia, this is currently a global phenomena.
Please see below links to some responses regarding the programme and the absurd claims made within it:
