Written Parliamentary questions of Wilders MP (PVV) to the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Justice and Security about the violence against Hindus in Bangladesh

July 19th 2022

Are you aware of the horrific violent attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh? What is your opinion on this?

Are you aware these attacks are carried out by Muslims(*)? What is your opinion on this?

Are you aware that Hindu houses, places of worship and shops are being set on fire in Bangladesh? What is your opinion on this?

Are you aware of the fact that violent attacks against minorities such as Hindus, in majority Muslim Bangladesh, have increased in recent years? What is your opinion on this?

Do you agree that these atrocities are unacceptable and that they are far too little publicized in the Western world? What is the cause of this in your opinion? Are you willing to help change that? If not, why not?

Do you agree that it is striking that violence against Muslims is often widely reported in the media, but at the same time violence by Muslims is often swept under the rug? If so, do you have an explanation for this? If not, why not?

Do you remember the courageous Nupur Sharma - and the facts about Mohammed she was provoked to state in a televised debate last May? Do you share my view that it is unacceptable that she was subsequently threatened with death, had to go into hiding and face criminal charges for speaking the truth? Are you prepared to show your support for Nupur Sharma to the Indian government? If not, why not?

Are you aware of the beheading by two Muslim men of a Hindu tailor, who had supported Nupur Sharma on social media? What is your opinion on this?

Are you aware that because of my support for Nupur Sharma I am frequently threatened with death from, among others, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan? What is your opinion on that? Will the suspects be tracked down and prosecuted? What international steps will you take to this end?

Are you willing to openly support the Hindus in Bangladesh and India and other countries, and to contact the governments of Bangladesh and India to that end? If not, why not?

Are you also prepared to openly condemn the violence of Muslims against Hindus? If not, why not?

Are you prepared to plead with the governments of both India and Bangladesh for better protection of the Hindus in their countries? If not, why not?

Would you like to answer these questions separately for each question?
