Complainant Name:
Mr Ash Choudry

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Ash Choudry complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately described a convicted heroin dealer, who had bullied and beaten his wife, as a "devout Muslim", in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

Although the newspaper did not accept a breach of the Code, the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the words "devout Muslim" from the online article as a gesture of good will.
