RIJSWIJK - The Dutch Muslim Council has invited Geert Wilders and his Freedom Party (PVV) to take part in a "constructive dialogue" aimed at putting an end to the polarisation and feelings of fear in Dutch society.

The council understands the concerns of Wilders and the many Dutch who voted for his party, but feel that the PVV leader cannot blame the Koran for the violent actions of individuals or groups.

The invitation is the council's response to the PVV leader's call for a ban on the Koran. The cooperative body of Muslim organisations of various backgrounds has invited Wilders for a talk in the past, but the PVV leader has never accepted the invitation.
