Dutch Lawmaker Does Not Plan to Revive Blasphemous Caricature Contest For Now
Speaking at the Ambrosetti conference in Italy, Geert Wilders discussed his decision to not start the blasphemous caricature contest for now. He expressed his shock over the attack of two American tourists in Amsterdam by a 19-year old Afghan.
“For now I will not be doing it soon again, for sure. On the one hand you say that you should never give in to people who threaten to use violence against freedom of speech,” he said on the topic. Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had complained about the controversial contest and warned that such activities could incite hate and violence.
“On the one hand you say that you should never give in to people who threaten to use violence against freedom of speech,” said Wilders. “If it would have been only about me, I would have continued and done it again but it was not only about me — it was about innocent people.”Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
