Switzerland: Peoples Party Plans More Restrictions on Muslim Rights

GENEVA – After its success in obtaining a legal blanket ban on the construction of mosque minarets, the right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP) is planning more restrictions on the Muslim minority, Islam Online reported on December 1. SVP lawmaker Adrian Amstutz told Swissinfo “Voters gave a strong signal to stop the claim to power by political Islam in Switzerland at the expense of our laws and values.” Amstutz said the SVP would also seek a ban on wearing the burqa, building Muslim cemeteries and exempting Muslim pupils from mixed swimming lessons.
