Response to Media Queries on the Film "Fitna", 29 March 2008
 
When asked to comment on the release of the film "Fitna" produced by Dutch MP, Geert Wilders, DPM and Minister for Home Affairs Wong Kan Seng said:
"The film "Fitna" is offensive to Muslims. It is regrettable that the producer, Geert Wilders chose to release it.
Freedom of expression does not give anyone the licence to insult another's religion or race.
I am confident that Singaporeans will react to this film in the same rational and calm manner as they did in similar previous incidents, for example, the publication of the Danish cartoons. They value the racial and religious harmony that we now enjoy."
