About Fitna The Movie

by Gerrit Visser  [March 22nd, 2008]

For months now, the Netherlands has been in the grip of the anti-Qur’an film announced by politician Geert Wilders [wikipedia]. What exactly is going on in the Netherlands? And why doesn’t the Dutch government ban the film?

Radio Netherlands Worldwide has produced its own short film about the issue in an effort to answer these questions. About ‘Fitna the Movie’ takes a more in-depth look at aspects of Dutch society, such as freedom of speech, aspects that sometimes lead to confusion abroad. The film also seeks to put Geert Wilders himself in perspective.

Very rarely has a film sparked off as much pre-release controversy as Dutch MP Geert Wilder’s ‘Fitna,the movie’. Even without knowing what’s in it, ‘Fitna’ [See Wikipedia for the meaning of this Arabian word] has got the world asking questions. Questions about the man who made it and his motives, about the country he lives in where his film is allowed. Questions about that country’s government – which issues warnings about the film but does nothing to stop it. And questions about the position of Muslims in The Netherlands. The central character in this film is also struggling with these questions, and decides to travel to The Netherlands in search of answers.

Latest news Sunday March 23: The website that Dutch MP Geert Wilders is planning to use to broadcast his film [wikipedia] criticising the Qu’ran has been de-activated by the US host service Network Solutions .

This site has been suspended while Network Solutions is investigating whether the site’s content is in violation of the Network Solutions Acceptable Use Policy. Network Solutions has received a number of complaints regarding this site that are under investigation“.

Mr Wilders has said that he plans to release Fitna online before the end of this month. The website has been online since the beginning of March.

The Dutch Muslim Broadcasting Association (NMO) proposed to launch the film on their broadcasting platform. NMO has been the only dutch public broadcasting association that offered their facilities. NMO demanded however a preview to make sure that the content is legal and respects the boundaries of the law. The dutch politician refuses to consider the request and said ,,No way, NMO”.
