UK music veteran, Apache Indian has slammed the BBC Asian Network and branded it “a disease” in one of his most passionate posts on Instagram.
Calling for the national radio station to be shutdown, Apache Indian claims he has a petition signed by 25,000 people over the years. Apache, who who was awarded a BEM in the New Year’s Honours List, said he will be presenting the petition to the Queen and the Prime Minister this spring.
“I’d like to bring something to the attention of the British people. We have faced many many cuts to services in the UK – right from the police, education, NHS and more. But yet we still seem to waste so much money on other things – one of them things is spending over £20 million a year on a BBC station that does nothing for this country – the BBC Asian Network. This station is riddled with problems and accusations of sexual harassment, mistreating people, accepting bribes, etc. They do nothing for the Asian music scene or the artists in the UK hence we don’t have much of an Asian music industry – no festivals, no award shows, nothing!”
He added, “They have nearly lost their licence three times over but yet still are operating. I will go further to say that they have even employed more Muslim presenters and got rid of others with lies and scandals, which have ruined lives. The British people have been fooled.”
