Geert Wilders' surprise ending

In an interview with Dutch GPD news agency, MP Geert Wilders has revealed more details about his controversial upcoming film about the Koran.

Dutch authorities are concerned about riots breaking out because there are rumours that Wilders will burn a Koran in the documentary.

Wilders, however, gave a hint in his interview about what may cause Muslim anger, but it has to do with an image of Mohammed, not the Koran.

Wilders also gave some more details about what would be shown in the film, which for months has been causing concern in the Netherlands.

It would lead viewers through the Koran, Islam's holy book, he said, and show texts illustrated by documentary video images to show the Koran is not a symbolic text "but that Islam can take away our freedom unless we act against it".

In the end the film returns to the situation in the Netherlands and finishes with a picture of the prophet Mohammed, he explained. Muslims consider images of their religion's founder to be blasphemous.

"Something will happen to that picture but I won't say what," Wilders said.
