Police investigating rector of Islamic University of Rotterdam for targeting Jews, homosexuals and Kurds

Rotterdam commissioner Latif Tali has pressed charges of discrimination and inciting hatred against Ahmet Akgunduz, rector of the Islamic University of Rotterdam, in the Netherlands.

According to RTV Rijnmond, the basis for the accusation is a series of tweets by Akgunduz about Kurds, however it is reported that complaints of antisemitism and homophobia will be added to the file due to Akgunduz’s previous statements.

Since the Islamic University of Rotterdam is not run by the state, the Ministry of Education cannot intervene, however Minister for Education Jet Bussemaker is reportedly working to change the law and has urged anyone targeted by Akgunduz to file a complaint with the police.
