Islam: The Untold Story — BBC Channel 4

On August 28, 2012 at 9:00 PM, Channel 4 of the BBC is hosting a program that explores the historical development of Islam. Professor Tom Holland investigates Islam in areas that a Muslim historian would never dare to explore for fear of his own life. Often, naive Muslims criticize Western scholarship because Western scholars investigate Islam without the uncritical presuppositions of Islamic scholars. It is simply too dangerous for an Islamic scholar to teach outside the bounds of orthodox Islam.
