Swiss referendum against minarets moves forward

People's party has organized a referendum that would ban the construction of minarets on mosques in Switzerland. Arguing that the minarets are a symbol of political and religious claims to power, not just a religious sign, Ulrich Schluer of the SPP has said: "We've got nothing against prayer rooms or mosques for the Muslims. But a minaret is different. It's got nothing to do with religion; it's a symbol of political power."
