Nicky Campbell 'Inshallah' on BBC Big Questions

A BBC presenter has signed off ‘Inshallah’ or ‘If Allah Wills It’ at the end of one of the organisation’s flagship, nationally televised debating programmes.

Nicky Campbell, the regular host of the Islam-heavy ‘The Big Questions’ was ending the programme discussing whether white, working-class boys discriminated against, and if the UK’s commitment to foreign aid be scrapped – when he dropped the line.
“We’re in Uxbridge next Sunday for a special asking ‘Are we facing the end of the world?’” he began, closing the show: “So we’ll see you then, Inshallah. For now, goodbye. Have a great Sunday”.
The move will no doubt irk some BBC viewers who still regard Sunday as the Sabbath in Christianity. Mr. Campbell’s line drew a smile from a hijab-clad girl sitting in the audience behind him….
Twitter users were unimpressed by the stunt:
@bbcbigquestions I know it was said in context of next show being about end of the world but I don't want to hear inshallah on BBC
BBC "The Big Questions" programme signed off with 'Inshallah" by host Nicky Campbell.
Is he Muslim?

BBC Big Question just ended his program by saying see you next week 'INSHALLAH' yet more Islamisation if our Broadcsting service ??
No doubt the organisation will receive complaints about the matter, though it may choose not to disclose how many in order to protect its reputation.
And Mr. Campbell took to Twitter to defend himself:
Because next weeks debate is about the end of the world! - and it is a nice expression. Calm down and shalom
