Swiss burqa ban campaigner wants to ban public Muslim prayers as well

A man who led a successful campaign to ban burqas in a region of Switzerland is now calling on authorities to outlaw Muslims from praying in public.

Giorgio Ghiringhelli, a right-wing activist who calls himself “il Guastafeste”, which roughly translates as “the killjoy” or “the spoilsport”, has said a ban is necessary to prevent “a Muslim ghetto like you see in Belgium.”

He has petitioned the Swiss canton of Ticino’s parliament to make such public prayers illegal.

On his website he warns of the “danger of the Islamisation of our Western society” and calls for a “policy of zero tolerance towards the subtle strategies of conquering Europe and radicalisation of Muslims implemented by Islamists.”

He also claims Muslim prayers are “anything but innocent” and “contain sublime messages of hatred towards Christians and Jews.”

A parliamentary committee in Ticino has already rejected Mr Ghiringhelli’s petition and it is thought the same will happen when it is discussed at an upcoming parliamentary session.

The petition is due to be examined by the Grand Council.

If it fails, Mr Ghiringhelli has threatened to launch a regional referendum. In order to do so he would have to collect 7,000 signatures from eligible voters in 100 days.

This is not beyond possibility. He has already won the backing of the right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP) – the country’s largest political party.
