The Danish People's Party has accused state broadcaster Danmarks Radio (DR) for favouring Islam in Friday's Great Prayer Day TV and radio broadcasts. DR had aired a Muslim Friday prayer service as a part of is observance the national religious holiday. 'Great Prayer Day is traditional Christian holy day where churches call Danes to prayer services. But on Great Prayer Day, it isn't the Danish people's faith that is most important for DR. They favourise Islam there,' said Søren Krarup, immigrant issues spokesman for the Danish People's Party. DR rejected Krarup's claim that the organisation favoured Islam to Christianity. Leif Lønsmann, the head of the corporation's radio service, pointed out that the Great Prayer Day broadcast was the only time during the year that DR has live coverage of Muslim prayer services. Lønsmann said that despite the wave of complaints from listeners over their decision to air the prayer services, he felt that it served the station's public service obligation. 'There's an apparently a rising intolerance over our allowing Muslims modest access to the airwaves. I feel that it is a good service for the faithful and a good public service for us, who don't believe,' said Lønsmann.
