Radio station off-air after “unwittingly” airing lectures by “terrorist”

A RADIO station broadcasting to Rotherham has had its licence suspended by Ofcom for airing lectures by a “global terrorist”.

Sheffield-based Iman FM, which is aimed at Muslim listeners, played 25 hours of content by the late Anwar al-Awlaki, who was linked to al-Qaeda by the UN Security Council in 2011.

In one such lecture, al-Awlaki urged listeners: “Prepare whatever strength you have for jihad.”

Ofcom suspended the radio station after complaints about two lectures that were broadcast.
