Angry Pakistanis Are Trying To “Cease Dutch Embassy” And Here’s The Whole Story Behind It

By Rameeza Ahmad | 17 Aug, 2018

Recently, a far-right politician in the Netherlands has organized an official contest, extremely offensive to Muslims.


Geert Wilders has said the Dutch Counter-Terrorism Agency has given them permission to officially hold a contest where people will draw cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The contest will be held in the party’s parliamentary offices and the winner will receive a big cash prize. The contest was announced more than a month ago. Geert Wilder’s is a member of parliament who is infamously against Muslims and has even called for a blanket ban on Muslims immigrants in the Netherlands.

What Geert refers to as ‘freedom of speech’ is something which is incredibly insensitive to Muslims around and world and people in Pakistan are especially upset.

Tehreek-e-Labaik is largely being credited for raising concern over this issue and the party’s leader Khadim Hussain Rizvi has been openly talking about it, condemning the Dutch government and asking Pakistani politicians to address the issue.

One of Tehreek-e-Labaik’s member addressed the Sindh assembly asking Syed Murad Ali Shah and other politicians to take action and condemn the event.

People are using the hashtag, ‘#CeaseDutchEmbassy’ to get the government to focus on the issue. People are asking for the government to send the Dutch ambassadors back to the Netherlands and to close the embassy.

A lot of people including Khadim Hussain Rizvi are questioning why Imran Khan has not addressed the issue yet.

People are now waiting for the government to officially take action against the Dutch embassy or at least release a statement.
