The Swiss Bais towards Islam, They feel the pinch as Islam Spreads among the Europeans as the right way of live.

 
Are the political parties in Switzerland trying to polarize votes on the lines of Religion and Define Secularism a fresh.
 
Islam has given the cultural ethos and respect and the monuments of Islamic architectural buildings and mosques have graced the sky lines of urban and rural spaces of the world.  

This is a new way of extreme rightists to test the patience and tolerance levels of Muslims, in Europe.

This will only make the Muslims Strong and more determined to express the Identity of Islam with greater resolve and present the better and perfect Islam to the Europe which is struggling to maintain the Cultural Ethos of Europe due to fast moral degradation among its people.

The Swiss vote saying ‘yes’ to banning theconstructionof minarets has sparked off a debate all over Europe, whether extreme right or secular left is the public opinion on Islam equally hostile?
The posters of the party that launched the minaret campaign in Switzerland, show white sheep kicking a black sheep off the Swiss flag
 , crows shredding the Swiss flag into bits and minarets shaped like missiles with burqa clad figures. 

 

In neighboring France, where church bells are not allowed to ring for prayer services but only to indicate the time, secularism means religion has to be understated and kept out of matters of the state. But some feel that the secular opinion, instead of being neutral, could also be turning hostile to Muslims living in Europe.
 
“We are framing the issue of integration of migrants as a moral divide, a conflict between values. There will be all values; the secular values being part of this framing as opposed to their values – like Islam, polygamy, deviance whatsoever. We discover that we can be progressive in terms of values and very intolerant vis a vis others,” said Christophe Bertossi, from French Institute of International Relations.
 
The Swiss vote is not just being seen as a huge triumph of the extreme right in Europe, but also raising concerns that the idea of secularism where neutrality is seen as progressive is perhaps also being used as a tool to challenge Muslim identity, pushing Muslims living in Europe into a tight corner.
