Wilders announces anti-Mohammed film
Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders is planning to make a follow up to his anti-Qur'an film Fitna. This time he will focus on the Muslim prophet Mohammed.
The controversial MP announced on Friday that his film on "the barbaric life and the sick mind of Mohammed" will come out in 2012.
Earlier this week, Mr Wilders said in weekly HP/De Tijd that he wanted a public debate on the prophet. He thinks such a debate would provide support for Muslims across the whole world, who want to leave the religion. He says reading the Qur'an and looking at the life of Mohammed has made him aware that Islam is "dangerous".
Mr Wilders believes a debate is needed, because people who want to leave Islam, risk their lives. He thinks ex-Muslims are heroes who deserve support.
In HP/De Tijd he says, "It's time we help these people by exposing Mohammed." In the article, he suggests that Mohammed suffered from a brain tumour which made him hallucinate and that he wrote down his hallucinations down as visions.
There was a great deal of commotion in the run up to his first film Fitna. However, once it was published on the internet in 2008, most people wondered what all the fuss had been about. A second film was planned for 2010, but the early elections meant a delay in its production.http://www.rnw.nl/data/files/images/lead/fitnathemovie650.jpg
