Netherlands: MP Proposes Banning the Koran

Reuters reports that Geert Wilders, a Dutch MP from the Partij voor de Vrijheid (Party for Freedom) has called for a ban on the Koran in the Netherlands. In a piece published in De Volkskrant, a Dutch daily, Wilders suggested that “this wretched book” should be banned “just like Mein Kampf is banned” so that the Koran could not be used as “an excuse or inspiration for violence”. Wilders has also supported banning face veils and construction of new mosques, and has proposed halting immigration of Muslims to the country.
