Organization of the Islamic Conference criticizes Netherlands for doing little to stop Islamophobia

In a report by the monitoring committee of the organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the Netherlands is coming under fire for doing very little to stop Islamophobia – this pertaining to the release of an anti-Quran film by Geert Wilders, expected to be released later this month. The Islamophobia Monitor, the first ever such report by the OIC, will be discussed by the 57 OIC member states at a summit in Senegal Thursday. The report describes Wilders’ film as an extremely provocative documentary, and points to the recent report by the European Commission Against Racism and Intolerance released in February, which points to shortfalls in the government’s handling of Islamophobia in the country.
