Austria investigates Wilders for hate speech
The Vienna public prosecutor has started an investigation against the Dutch right-wing leader Geert Wilders on charges of hate speech.
A Muslim group pressed charges against Wilders after he made statements comparing the Koran with Adolf Hitler's book Mein Kampf and demanded that the Islamic holy book be banned during a meeting with the right-wing Freedom Party in Vienna in March.
Tarafa Baghajati, chairman of the Initiative of Muslim Austrians said that Wilders had denigrated religious teachings and breached the law banning a revival of Nazi ideology.
