Prime minister and Wilders have not discussed Fitna 2

Prime minister Mark Rutte and anti-Islam party leader Geert Wilders have not had any contact about the latter’s plans to make a new film attacking Mohammed.

Rutte told reporters at his weekly news conference he had not spoken to the MP about his Fitna 2 film, which will be released next year.
But the film would have to keep within the bounds of decency, Rutte was quoted as saying by news agency ANP.
Wilders used the microblogging service Twitter to tell his followers the film will be about the ‘barbaric life of the sick soul Mohammed’.
The first Fitna film, a 17-minute compilation of video clips, was released in 2008.
