He has almost single-handedly, the successful Initiative for a burqa ban in Ticino mastered. Now Giorgio Ghiringelli apparently plans for a people's initiative to prohibit prayers in public space, "the hate messages, other religions discriminate against and against the anti-racism norm violated". According to the CH media, he justifies his claim with a passage in the Muslim prayer, the calls allegedly implicitly to hatred against Christians and Jews. Ghiringhelli is basing the Interpretation on Sami Aldeeb, a Swiss jurist with Palestinian roots.
In the next week, the Ticino's cantonal Parliament is concerned with Ghiringellis Petition on the subject. The preparatory Committee has rejected his request. However, the non-party critics of Islam from Losone will be launching its mini-movement "Il guastafeste" (spoiler) with "90 percent certainty" of a national initiative. A difficult Problem to solve for the atheists in the initiative text. Ghiringhelli not want him to say this in a way that he discriminated against Muslims, but whose prayers out on the open road prevents.
Should be forbidden for Muslims to Pray in a public space?Yes
Saida Keller-Messahli, President of the forum for a progressive Islam, considers it a mistake to adopt a "non-issue" a ban, she says, compared with CH Media. "The average Muslim is perfectly integrated in the Swiss society, would never in the sense that he could discriminate with the prayer of Jews and Christians." And: "In other European countries such as Belgium, England or France, there are Muslim groups that provoke with Prayers in the public space. In Switzerland, but not."
