Criminal declaration against Wilders in Austria

A Muslim organization has laid criminal charges against Geert Wilders with the Austrian justice. This follows the PVV leader's recent visit with his sympathizers of the FPO in Vienna during which he gave an anti-Islam speech at Hofburg, De Telegraaf reports.

In this speech Wilders said that Islam has declared war against Europe, that Islam turns men into terrorists and that the Koran should be banned.

"They (justice, ed) must now investigate whether Wilders has committed nation incitement and whether he insulted Islam as a religion." Tarafa Baghajati, chairman of the Initiative Austrian Muslims, told the newspaper.
