The controversial anti-Islamic Dutch film Fitna was accessible for downloading on the Internet by host LiveLeak for a short time before being removed due to threats from Islamic extremists. This follows the decision of Dutch TV stations not to carry Geert Wilders’ film, which reportedly states that the Koran instigates violence and discrimination and that Islamic extremists aim to impose their religious beliefs globally.
In the first 30 minutes after it was posted on LiveLeak, the film reportedly received one million views.
This is not the first Dutch film to criticise Islam. Director Theo van Gogh was murdered by Islamic extremists in In 2004 following the release of his film.
