Dutch Lawmaker Making Film Criticizing Quran

Geert Wilders, leader of the conservative Freedom Party in the Netherlands, has announced that he is making a short film which will be highly critical of certain passages of the Quran. The Interior and Justice ministers have expressed their concern but cannot prevent screening of the movie in view of freedom of expression laws. Wilders stated that he is not afraid of reprisals as he has been living with twenty-four hour protection for the past three years already.
