"The holy month of Ramadan"
In the midst of the BBC 6pm Radio 4 news there was a long piece on swine flu with a rather odd emphasis on Iran and the Haj. The BBC report also referred to "The Holy Month of Ramadan". Excuse me it not my holy month, it is not a British hold month, it is the Muslim holy month. Just as with referring to the Muslim prophet as "the prophet Mohammed"; the BBC seem ever willing to take the Islamic line.
