2. Community

Episode 2 of 4

It seems from the news that all Muslims belong to the 'Muslim Community', but what is this mysterious organisation? Who runs it? What does it do? Tez investigates.

Breakthrough comedian Tez Ilyas presents a show for everyone interested in - or interested in becoming - a British Muslim. Everything you need to know is here - the do's, don'ts, and avoid-or-you'll-be-arresteds. Simultaneously a hilarious, joyous celebration of British-Muslim life - and a subversive, thoughtful satire on society's attitudes to Islam.

In this episode, Tez looks at 'Community'. It seems from the news, all Muslims belong to the 'Muslim Community' - but what is this mysterious organisation? Who runs it? What does it do? And does Nadiya from Bake Off speak for them all? Tez gets to the bottom of it...
