ISLAMABAD: Pakistani religious groups on Monday condemned a referendum in Switzerland that saw voters approve a ban on the construction of mosque minarets, calling it 'extreme Islamophobia.'
Switzerland on Sunday voted in favour of a ban on new mosque minarets - the towers or turrets attached to mosques from which Muslims are traditionally called to prayer - prompting dismay and anger in the Muslim world.
'This development reflects extreme Islamophobia among people in the West,' said Khurshid Ahmad, vice president of Jamaat-e-Islami, a Islamic political party that is represented in Pakistan's parliament.
'This also represents very serious discrimination against Muslims.' Pakistan is the world's second most populous Muslim nation.
The far-right Swiss People's Party (SVP) had forced a referendum after collecting a mandatory 100,000 signatures from eligible voters.
Conservative Swiss politicians argued that the minarets were not architectural features with religious characteristics, but symbolised a 'political-religious claim to power, which challenges fundamental rights.'
Ahmad described the Swiss decision as a serious violation of human rights and international law, telling AFP: 'This is an effort to provoke Muslims and prompt a clash between Islam and the West.'

So its confirmed , again, the religion of piece is going to volunteer more irrational islamic violence.
Threat of hate , threat of violence, threatening of others rights..... the swiss are the swiss. Its their country.... their bar six.
Why is it Europeans warn their governments NOT to do something PREVENTATIVE because there can be reprisals yet when there is a overt jihadist attack on the West (9-11, 7-7, Ft. Hood, etc.) it is the muslim community that fears reprisals?
Why don’t the peaceful muslims warn the jihadist Imam NOT to stir up the “lone nuts” because there can be reprisals on the entire Islamic community?
The lone nuts? Are islams army which all endorse.
Sure they pay lip service to the wrongness of what the jihadists are up to ... but amongst themselves these guys are all martyrs.
As everything does.
Could all Europeans be as stupid as Americans to have basically destroyed their birthright for some cheap labor.
Good news you made my day.
you have to understand them. you know when the western world trys to survive it´s racism, fashism, intolerance... when muslim terrorists targed little kids in school buses in Israel it´s legitimate freedom fighting, when they stone a woman who has been raped its expressing their religios freedoms ,and i guess 9/11 was just a sort of cultural misunderstanding...
This is the most politically incorrect thing I have heard in years. (I love it)
>>They can persecute, harass and oppress non-Muslims in their countries but we can’t do anything to defend our way of life.<<
Whose fault is it? The West has allowed Islam to piss on it since it allowed their emigration.
Absolutely....you get what you’ll put up with. Be proudm stand up to the cowardly bullies, foreign and domestic, and punch their friggin’ lights out! Better to be devoured by a lion than gnawed to death by a pack of rats.
Could all Europeans be as stupid as Americans
Why do you suggest that Average Americans have anything to do with our corrupt and degenerate elected and appointed Officials support for illegal labor and migration?
The Business Community is making the money.. Keeping wages down and profits high thru the use of Illegal Labor..
We the People... do not benifit.. at best our interests are simply ignored by Corrupt and degenerate Elected and Appointed Officials.
Agreed. And from 6 different directions, all “singing” a different song. What a cacophony. I would have worn earplugs to sleep, but that would have cut down my reaction time to the incoming. Can not please these POSs except by dying.
"Of 150 mosques or prayer rooms in Switzerland, only 4 have minarets, and only 2 more minarets are planned. None conduct the call to prayer. There are about 400,000 Muslims in a population of some 7.5 million people. Close to 90 percent of Muslims in Switzerland are from Kosovo and Turkey, and most do not adhere to the codes of dress and conduct associated with conservative Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, said Manon Schick, a spokeswoman for Amnesty International in Switzerland." -- New York Times, 11/30/2009
