Anti-Islam Dutch member of parliament Geert Wilders said that he will broadcast a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad on TV in response to the government’s rejection of an exhibition of the same cartoons that were displayed in the parliamentary building of Garland, Texas.
Wilders released a statement saying “it would have been appropriate if the Dutch parliament, in which I have been elected, would have permitted to exhibit the cartoons in question.” reported Trt World news.
“Since the Bureau of the board of the Chamber has rejected my request, I will soon show some of the cartoons on national television, during the broadcast slot allowed to my political party,” he added.
“Terrorists have to realize that they will never win and how important freedom of speech is for us in the Netherlands."
Wilder’s demand for an exhibition came one month after two gunmen were shot dead in Texas after they opened fire outside a contest for depicting the Prophet Muhammad..
