Cancelling of the ‘Draw Mohammed’ cartoon contest proves the point: Islam is a violent, totalitarian ideology which should have no place in Western civil society.

Following threats to kill Dutch tourists and to target Dutch institutions, Geert Wilders MP decided to call off the ‘Draw Mohammed’ cartoon contest planned for exhibition in the PVV’s parliamentary offices in The Hague later this year.

Far-right Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders says he has cancelled a planned Prophet Mohammad cartoon contest following death threats, safety concerns and fear of violence.

Wilders said he made the decision ‘to avoid the risk of victims of Islamic violence’ and noted that his point ‘about the intolerant nature of Islam has been proved again by this,’ in a written statement on Thursday.

Known for his hard-line stance against Islam, the politician said he would never personally stop his campaign against Islam but the risk to innocents, and of attacks on the Netherlands, stemming from the contest were too great.

Wilders had planned the content for November and it was to be held at the tightly guarded offices of his Party for Freedom in the Dutch parliament building.

However, it became the subject of protests in Pakistan where thousands of people demonstrated against the contest, in a march organised by Islamist party Tehreek-e-Labbaik.

The protesters called on Pakistan and other Islamist countries to sever all ties with the Netherlands and the Taliban urged Afghan soldiers to attack Dutch troops serving in the NATO-led Resolute Support mission in retaliation for what it called a blasphemous action and a hostile act by the Netherlands against all Muslims.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte last week defended Wilders’ right to stage the contest, saying it fell within the boundaries of freedom of speech, but also stressed the plan was not a government initiative.

Wilders is no stranger to death threats sparked by his fierce anti-Islam rhetoric and lives under round-the-clock protection.

Earlier this week, Dutch police arrested a 26-year-old man suspected of threatening to attack Wilders over his plan.

In 2005, the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published cartoons of Prophet Mohammad that sparked a wave of protest across the Muslim world and several attempts to kill either its editor or cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.

Ten years later, a pair of Islamists stormed the offices of magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, known for publishing satirical cartoons of the Prophet, and killed 12 people.

Following Wilders’ announcement, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, a firebrand Pakistani cleric, called off the march on Friday which began on Wednesday from the eastern city of Lahore.

Thousands of protesters in Pakistan called off their rally after reaching near Islamabad.

Images of Prophet Mohammad are traditionally forbidden in Islam as idolatrous. Caricatures are regarded by most Muslims as highly offensive.

    …….
    Images of Prophet Mohammad are forbidden in Islam and seen as very offensive”

    The headings need to be more explicit. Any reference to the Mohammedans idol should read : ‘the muslim-alleged prophet Mohammed’ or similar – to reinforce the fact that it is only muslims who hold the 7th century murderous Bedouin egoist in such high regard.
