Dutch TV show tricks people into thinking they’re hearing the Qur’an when it’s really the Bible

This Dutch TV show goes out onto the street and reads to them passages from the Qur’an and then asks the passers-by what they think. What the Dutch public only find out afterwards is that they’ve been tricked and the sacred text they’ve heard actually comes from the Christian Bible!

Read the short article and watch the TV clip here on the Independent. There is only one swear word in the Dutch sub-titles and you may recognise some of the quotes from GCSE Unit 1 Section 3 on Homosexuality and summer term Year 8 work about sexism.

  1. it just proves that due to people only knowing about their own religion they become very unobservant to other religions. also, social media is a big influence on why people think wrongly about other religions. we need to learn more about our own religion before we judge another religion and what their religious book teaches.

  2. It shows that Christianity is much like Islam and that there is no much difference in teachings and beliefs, only that the language is different.

  3. This video shows that people are very stereotypical and due to current events assume that all Muslims are violent. They would not expect behavior from the “good guys” at the moment therefore are surprised by finding out their religion can be violent too.

  4. This video shows that people have their head filled with sterotypes and don’t actually know it. I find it intresting to see how suprised they are at how violent some of the passages in the bible actually are. Finally it shows that people are influenced in their beliefs by what they are told by the media.

  5. This video portrays the fact that many people have prejudiced minds regardless of whether they realise or not towards certain things that have been portrayed negatively in the media, for example in the Quran.
