‘The Onion for Muslims’ launches

Duration: 04:55

The site is already being called “the Onion for Muslims” – it was founded by three Muslim men in the US, and pokes fun at both Islamophobia and the wider Islamic world. The men wish to remain anonymous; we spoke to “Kamal” and “Baba". You’ll hear from Baba first.
