Switzerland: Next up, anti-burka initiative

On November 27th Swiss citizens will be asked to vote on the anti-minaret initiative.  According to SonntagsZeitung, the occasion will be used to collect signatures for a future anti-burka initiative.

Action will take place November 2nd, with leaflets being distributed against the burqa.

Jann-Andrea Thöny, of the youth branch of the Swiss People's Party, said that they want to draw attention to Islamization and against the provocation of the burqa.

"These arguments make me laugh," replied Hisham Maizar, president of the Federation of Swiss Islamic Organizations.
