Bosnian Sheikh condemns Swiss minaret ban

Head of the Bosnian Muslims Sheikh Mustafa Ceric condemned the Swiss vote banning minarets as an infringement of human rights that was part of a wider European “moral crisis.”
Sheikh Ceric also that the Swiss decision is a flagrant violation of the freedom of religion and that the referendum itself is a disregard for the religious rights of Muslims.
Sheikh Ceric said that Switzerland has set a precedence that may be followed by other countries, especially the European ones.
Germany’s Bild paper writes that Germans would probably vote the same way if they were allowed a referendum on the issue.
“Nowhere is life made harder for Christians than in Islamic countries. Those who are intolerant themselves cannot expect unlimited tolerance from others,” writes Bild.
Sheikh Ceric says that Swiss had shown an “inability to respect the human rights which are the foundation stone of European values,” Ceric said.
Sheikh Ceric claims that Bosnian Muslims, who comprise a large colony in Switzerland, are part of the European cultural legacy.
“Nowhere is life made harder for Christians than in Islamic countries. Those who are intolerant themselves cannot expect unlimited tolerance from others,” writes Bild.
Bild says that Muslims are an alien culture seeking to “to impose one’s own beliefs on others with ‘fire and the sword.’”.
“Those who are intolerant themselves cannot expect unlimited tolerance from others,” writes Bild.
