The Hague, September 23, 2016
Last week Geert Wilders, leader of the far right party PVV (Party for Liberty) in the Dutch parliament called for a ban of the Qu’ran to be enforced by the police. For the first time he outline the practical implication. The Qu’ran should be banned like Hitler’s Mein Kamp. The police should enforce the closure of mosques and prayer rooms (called hate-palace by Wilders) and the police should be able to enter private houses and confiscate Qu’rans.
Wilders was asked questions in parliament about the viability of his ideas, but there has been no outcry among politicians, opinion makers and the media.
A recent report by the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) in the UK shows that Islamophobia has increased across Europe and has evolved into new, accepted forms of discrimination against Muslims whose effects are apparent in all forms of daily life.
Wilders’ Party has now 12 seats in the 150-member Second Chamber of the Dutch Parliament. In the opinion polls he is leading above all other parties with 29 seats. A victory in the upcoming elections in March 2017 will further increase the climate of hate in Holland and Europe.
DIN calls upon the world community to send a letter of protest to the president of the Dutch Parliament and ask for a condemnation of this hate speech.
