Headline

Swiss mosque minaret ban is tragic legislation

Comment

Architectural interest in a building type is hardly any sound justification for building it. There have been muslims in this country since the middle ages (Henry I had a Saracen architect), yet there have been no minarets until in the late C20th - why now? Couple this with the rise of the burqua in this country and it suggests Islam in Europe is taking a more sinister tone.
