Sydney, Feb 19: A controversial MP from the Netherlands has called for mass migration from Islamic nations to be banned, saying that Islam and freedom are not compatible.
Speaking in Melbourne at his first Australian press conference amid tight security, Geert Wilders said Islam could not integrate into western societies.
He said that Islam is totalitarianism adding that ‘Islam and freedom are incompatible’, the Herald Sun reports.
Wilders said mass migration from Islamic countries to Western nations should be stopped, except for certain humanitarian cases.
He said that he was not in the business of insulting people or inciting hatred, but he made derogatory remarks about the prophet Mohammed, the report said.
He added that Mohammed was a warlord, a terrorist and a paedophile.
Wilders said that those stopped from migrating from countries such as Lebanon would include Christians.
But an organiser of the MP’s visit, Andrew Horwood from the Q Society, interjected and said that the situation in the Netherlands was different to Australia.
Despite threats of protests, no demonstrators attended the press conference, which was held in Melbourne’s outer western suburbs, it added. (ANI)
