'The misrepresentation of Muslims in the Irish media is a problem'

Amanullah de Sondy, UCC's Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Islam, joined George on the show today to discuss Islam depiction in the media

UCC's Amanullah de Sondy joined George Hook on High Noon today, unimpressed with how the Irish media continues to depict the Muslim faith and culture.

He said, 'it's a big problem'.  He continued, 'Muslims are depicted as monsters'.

The Immigrant Council of Ireland held a seminar today on the misrepresentation of Muslims in the Irish media.

Despite being one of the largest minority groups in the country, still Muslims, like Mr de Sondy, feel that there is little visibility of their religion and culture in the mainstream media today.

George challenged him on some of his assertions.  Listen back below.
