The Dutch in Turkey should avoid demonstrations and other large gatherings because they can become violent. There is an increasing risk of demonstrations against the Netherlands, according to a new travel advice for Turkey from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The reason for the warning is two recent anti-Islamic actions in which Korans were destroyed. Pegida foreman Edwin Wagensveld tore up a copy of the Koran in The Hague last Sunday.
Earlier in Sweden, a right-wing extremist burned a Quran. These actions ‘may evoke anti-Western feelings and lead to demonstrations’, the travel advice states. ‘There is also an increased threat of an attack against Western targets and places of worship.’
