UK - 'Muslim' adverts banned from Tube

Good grief! Now you can't even use the word "Muslim" in adverstising, even though it portrays Muslims in a positive light!

The channel described the show, starring Michael Ealy as FBI agent Darwyn Al Sayeed, as the first American drama to feature a Muslim as the lead heroic character.

The character poses as a prisoner in order to infiltrate a fundamentalist group.

And the reason for the ban?

"This decision was taken in line with our standard policies, which seek to avoid gratuitously insulting large groups of Londoners."

Now which groups whould that be?
