Atheists allowed their opinions too

IT was good to learn that the BBC's head of religion and ethics, Aaqil Ahmed, believes it should do more for minority faiths and that he defended his position by quoting the census showing 4.4% of people nationwide affirming Islam as their religion.

However, he rejected the need for an atheist point-of-view - in spite of the census showing 25.7% not claiming a religion.

It is, therefore, time he changed his job title to just head of religion and left the ethical debates to someone else who can give a balanced point of view.
