Last week, Dutch moviemaker Theo van Gogh was gunned down in Amsterdam by an Islamic fundamentalist, allegedly linked to Al-Qaeda.
Theo van Gogh had made a film earlier, depicting the lives of opressed women in some Islamic societies, icurring the wrath of some radical Islamic elements.
This is a highly reprehensible act, which deserves condemnation from everyone who believes in free-speech. While I do have great respect for Islam as a religion, there is no way such acts in its name can be tolerated by free societies!
Rest in peace, Theo van Gogh!
