Jumu'ah - just another entertainment channel?

Brother Ibrahim Musa had interviewed me on Channel Islam International concerning the above subject.

Brother Ibrahim has also transcribed the gist of the interview here

I had given credit to a meeting with Brother Khalid Baig to opening my mind to the pitfalls of using the entertainment medium of TV as a religious medium. However, I had not deemed it appropriate to mention on CII, that the very people who received a thorough and personal explanation on the view of Khalid Baig in that meeting, very mischievously selectively quoted him at a meeting last year, to give the impression that this great thinker is in fact in favour of their participation on iTV ("Islam" TV). I should respect differences of opinion, but to respect dishonesty?

I strongly encourage every Muslim who is interested in honest discourse on the issue, and not just empty slogans of, adapt to the times, etc, to read the book Khalid Baig had advised us to read. Please obtain a copy of Amusing ourselves to death by Neil Postman.
