Express Retraction Over False Claim School ‘Banned’ From Singing Silent Night

In December 2016, the Express falsely claimed that school children were banned from singing Silent Night over ‘fears it will offend other religions’. After this was challenged by Assistant Secretary General of the MCB, Miqdaad Versi, and others, the Express corrected its misleading headline on 25th May 2017, with an acknowledgement of the error in a note at the bottom of the article, and with a seperate correction published.
