Excerpt:

A Sun column which used the phrase "The Muslim Problem" has been cleared of breaching the Editors' Code by press regulator IPSO.

IPSO said in its adjudication: "The committee acknowledged that the question posed at the end of the column – 'What will we do about The Muslim Problem then' – was capable of causing serious offence, given it could be interpreted as a reference to the rhetoric preceding the Holocaust.
