Dutch populist Wilders calls for ban on Quran

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 7 years ago

Books 2

An anonymous reader writes "Dutch anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders has called for the Quran to be banned in the Netherlands, branding it a 'fascist book' in the vein of Adolf Hitler's 'Mein Kampf' which legitimises violence. Writing in Dutch daily De Volkskrant on Wednesday Wilders said: "Ban this wretched book just like 'Mein Kampf' is banned. Send a signal ... to Islamists that the Koran can never, ever be used in our country as an excuse or inspiration for violence." http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?newsid=1114413"

I'd agree with this, except that the Koran doesn't promote violence any more than the Bible does. Both could be used to promote violence, but only as interpreted by militant radicals with an extremist political agenda.
