In Austria, the Graz state prosecutor has filed charges against the FPO (Freedom Party of Austria) politician, Gerhard Kurzmann, for incitement to hatred. The case relates to the Flash game "Moschee baba" (Bye Bye Mosque) that was published on a political website during the Austrian regional elections last year. In the game, players try to stop mosques and minarets from taking over the landscape.

When the game ends the text reads:

Game Over. The Steiermark [part of Austria] is full of mosques and minarets. So this doesn't happen, vote for Gerhard Kurzmann and the FPO on 26 November.


The original website that featured the game was shut down but it can still be found here. There is also a Germanised version of it here.
