Ex-Muslim Jami asked to quit council seat

The Labour party in Leidschendam Voorburg has asked Ehsan Jami, founder of the committee of ex-Muslims and local Labour councillor, to give up his seat.

The request follows an article written by Jami and anti-immigration MP Geert Wilders in which they likened the prophet Mohammed to Adolf Hitler.
‘Ehsan is following his own agenda at the moment,’ local party head Harry Oldersma was reported as saying.
