Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has questioned the decision of the BBC to interview journalist and political activist Ash Sarkar on a programme about the rise of Nazism.

Marie said: “We would ask the BBC to explain why someone who defended the desecration of a memorial to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising has been invited to speak on a programme about the rise of the Nazis. Given the outrage her comments have caused, the invitation by the programme makers seems both insensitive and provocative.”
