The poster refers to the fact a local family with six children were said to have been planning to move to Syria last year and were stopped by police.
Local politicians had covered the offending text with stickers, and now a Moroccan-Dutch man from Naarden is hoping to take legal action against local broadcaster RTV Noord Holland for its ‘jihad family’ poster.
…However, RTV NH director Paul van Gessel said he did not understand the uproar. ‘We focus on a theme which is important in a region,’ he told current affairs show Dit is de Dag. ‘Jihad fighters are an issue in ‘t Gooi. We are a journalistic organisation and we ask questions.’
