'I won't let my girls swim with boys': Muslim dad
by Lyssandra Sears
A Muslim father in Basel is refusing to let his daughters participate in mixed swimming lessons, despite having been taken to court and fined several times.
The 36-year-old man known as Bardul D is father to five daughters. He arrived from Macedonia some twenty years ago, met his wife and decided to settle in Basel, newspaper Blick reports.
"It was only in Switzerland that we decided we wanted to live according to a stricter understanding of Islam," he told the website.
