BBC’s East Enders

Jess Denham in The Independent reports, ‘EastEnders has been widely praised for highlighting the true meaning of Islam during Monday night’s episode. One brief scene in the long-running soap saw Muslim character Tamwar (Himesh Patel) attempt to explain his religion to girlfriend Nancy (Maddy Hill), after she asked him what an Arabic passage he had marked in The Quran meant.“Do good to relatives, orphans, the needy, the neighbour who is near of kin, the neighbour who’s a stranger, to the companion at your side, and to the traveller,” it read… Many viewers were touched by the moment, which proved poignant following last week’s horrific terrorist attack at the hands of Islamic State gunmen in Paris.’ Click here.
