Secrecy about anti-Koran film worries Dutch government

The secrecy about the content and release date of the anti-Quran film made by a Dutch right-wing politician is worrying officials, who are trying to anticipate reaction and security needs. Ernst Hirsch Ballin told parliament that it would be easier to prepare and assess possible risks if the government knew when populist Geert Wilders planned to release his film, and what was in it. Wilders, who calls the Muslim holy book the Quran as fascist book that incites violence has given few details about the film and has not specified when the film would be released. Ahead of the film’s release, the Netherlands raised its national risk level to substantial earlier this month.
