Dutch Muhammad cartoon contest gets cancelled

Aug 31, 2018 15:59 IST

Far-Right Dutch Politician Geert Wilders generated a furore when he announced a cartoon contest to make the drawings of the Prophet. It sparked not just angry protests in Pakistan but the Dutch Government also distanced itself by saying Wilders is in Opposition and not part of the government. Wilders has now cancelled the contest "to avoid risk of Islamic violence", after receiving death threats.
