We have received complaints from listeners who felt that it was inappropriate to interview Anjem Choudary on 20 December following the guilty verdicts in the Lee Rigby murder trial.
BBC News response
We have given great consideration to our reporting of the Woolwich murder and the subsequent trial, and carried a wide range of views from across the political and religious spectrums. We have a responsibility to both report on the story and try
to shed light on why it happened. We believe it is important to reflect the fact that such opinions exist and feel that Anjem Choudary's comments may offer some insight into how this crime came about. His views were robustly challenged by both
the presenter, John Humphrys and by Lord Carlile, the government's former anti-terrorism adviser.
