Politician's daughter An-Sofie Dewinter poses in a burka and bikini in a campaign against Islamic extremists

A Belgian politician has risked causing uproar among Muslims after starting a ‘Women Against Islamization’ campaign featuring his 19-year-old daughter wearing a burka and a bikini.
Filip Dewinter, leader of the far-right Vlaams Belang party, uses a shot of his daughter An-Sofie Dewinter in the dark blue bikini for the political campaign.
The glamorous teenager dons a burka that covers her head and face, while the rest of the Muslim garment is draped over her back.
The provocative image is likely to inflame tensions among Islamic groups and nationalists in the racially-divided country.
The poster shows the words ‘Freedom or Islam?’ written on a red bar across Ms Dewinter’s breasts.
Further down the poster a black panel with the words ‘You choose!’ is seen covering the teenager’s crotch.
The extremist Vlaams Belang party claims that it wants to convince women to take a stand against Islam.
Ms Dewinter told the Belgian press she does not feel used by the party.
She said: ‘I’ve suggested (the poster) myself, I have learned to live with it but I have had everything up to death threats made at me.’
She said that she ‘ wanted to make this statement.’
She added: ‘What is the greatest contrast with a niqab? Nude.

‘The campaign fits in perfectly with how I feel about the whole issue . As women, we must choose: freedom or Islam.’

The teenager claimed that she had been threatened by Muslim groups
She added: ‘Death threats and criticism no longer scare me off.’
Her father, the party’s leader, said: ‘Women are always the first victims of Islam. We want to make clear that they have a choice.’
The potentially incendiary poster comes after The Islamic fundamentalist group Shariah4Belgium was slammed for its aggressive stance.
The group opened the country’s first Sharia court, a putting it on a collision course with the country’s nationalists.
Vlaams Belang spoke out against the Muslim courts and said that all legal disputes should be settled in the country’s civil judicial system.
Mr Dewinter claims Shariah4Belgium’s leadership said he should be killed for expressing his views.
Sharia4Belguim was fined 550 Euros in January for inciting hatred towards non-Muslims.
Moderate Muslims say they do not agree with the group’s hardline stance.
