(DIP) AMBASSADORS OF OIC COUNTRIES IN GENOVA CONDEMN MINARET BAN.
OIC Ambassadors in Genova Group sent a letter to the Swiss government saying that the ban was an unequivocal attack on an Islamic symbol and would only contribute to the anti-Islam sentiment and intolerance against muslims, particularly in Switzerland.
It said the ban was a clear violation of the international laws on freedom of expression and religious freedoms recognised by Switzerland, underlining the danger of this tendency spreading to other areas.
The group pointed out that the government was against the ban expressing firm belief that it would try to reverse the ban with necessary parlimentary and judicial measures.
