The website that a Dutch right-wing lawmaker plans to use to broadcast a film criticizing the Koran has been de-activated by the host service after receiving a number of complaints about the site, Radio Netherlands reported Sunday.

Geert Wilders, whose Freedom Party has nine seats in the lower house of Dutch parliament, is due to release his film Fitna (arabic for trial) online before the end of this month. The website has been online since the beginning of March.

The U.S. service provider is investigating whether the site's content violates the company's policies, the report said.

Wilders' plan has sparked numerous protests in many Muslim countries and has been condemned as inciting hatred against Islam.

The Dutch government is worried that the film could result in serious consequences for the Netherlands' political and economic interests. Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende and other Dutch politicians had urged Wilders to reconsider the plan but Wilders rejected the calls.

On Saturday, around 1,300 people gathered in the center of Dutch capital Amsterdam to protest against Wilders and the film as well as against racism and discrimination in general.
