Nick Griffin's 'right to discriminate' comments

Join the debate with Nihal at 1. He's asking, should you have the right to discriminate based on your religious beliefs? Michael Black and John Morgan have successfully sued the christian owner of a guesthouse after she refused to allow them to share a bed. The story has attracted even more publicity after BNP leader Nick Griffin said people have the "right to discriminate". If you openly criticise homosexuality because it's an issue that clashes with your religious beliefs are you accused of being a bigot? Do we live in a society where such comments are simply not tolerated - even though they're central to your faith? Or do you think it's absolutely right that discrimination of all types is looked down on? After 2, celebrated Indian food writer Madhur Jaffrey joins Nihal to talk about her book and TV show Curry Nation. And later in the hour, 'Do you think young Asians care about saving?'.
