Political Correctness

A recent post by The Religious Policeman ("One small step") bring an article from the Guardian.

Police are investigating claims that tapes and DVDs inciting Muslims to violence were left at mosques in the town where one of the July 7 bombers lived during last weekend's Eid celebrations.

Some of the local mosque members reported these tapes and DVDs to the police. And so the Guardian brings us a (rare?) example of UK Political Correctness:

A spokeswoman for the force said: "Members of the local Asian community brought this matter to our attention. We have received a copy of a video which is currently being looked at. The inquiry is at an early stage."

It is obvious that the Japanese and Korean communities were not those who contacted the police. It is impossible for them to say "Members of the local Muslim community"? Is "Muslim" such a bad word?
