by Chris Newbould on Aug 1, 2011

Islamic satellite channel Iqraa is to launch multi-language religious programmes from the first day of Ramadan, Arab News has reported.

The channel's Islamic programmes will eventually be transmitted in seven world languages. Initially they will be only in English but gradually the programmes will be presented in French, Urdu, Malay, Chinese, Afrikaans and Russian. The channel is transmitted in Asia and Australia on Asia Sat 5; in Africa on Intelsat 10; and in Europe on Hotbird 8.
