It takes courage for the whole orchestra to walkout on their conductor, but that is what happen in Holland when a Muslim Conductor started preaching the virtues of Islam in front of the Queen of Netherlands who was seated for the concert.
Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands attended a concert in the capital, The Hague. The Conductor, who just happens to be Muslim, proceeds to give the Queen a lecture on the “beauty” of Islam.
Once the orchestra realised what was going on, the entire orchestra got up and walked out, refusing to be associated with someone lecturing their queen on Islam.
The conductor tried to stop the orchestra walking out by saying that he did not have a bomb! but they took no notice of him and continued to walk off stage and into their dressing room.
Staff of the music hall escorted the conductor off-stage and after questioning, escorted him out of the building.
The question we have to ask ourselves, if this were to take place in the Roya Albert Hall, would the BBC symphony or the LSO do the same, or are we too politically correct to take action, as we might cause offence to someone?
Good for the people of Holland
