Now Muslims will have the opportunity of introducing themselves at a state TV channel for the first time since 1974 when Islam was officially recognized in Belgium. On Flemish state channel (Een) first Islamic program is on air on 18th of September. At present, Flemish Radio and TV channel VRT includes the broadcasts of Catholic, Jewish and Orthodox sects.
Flemish Parliamentarian Veli Yuksel had the pioneering role in this. First program will involve an interview with Ingrid Lietens, Flemish Ministry of Media, some adventures of Islamic scholars, the fasting program of Fedactio Federation and an interview with a Belgium man who has converted to Islam.
