Swiss against Islam as an official religion
Almost two-thirds of people living in Switzerland do not think Islam should be recognised as an official Swiss religion, according to a survey. A similar proportion believes there is no place for Islam in the country.
Asked whether Islam should be granted the same official status as Christianity and Judaism, 61% of 15,617 respondents said "no" or "probably no" in what the Swiss News Agency reports was a representative survey carried out by the Tamedia publishing house. The results were published in Le Matin Dimanche and the SonntagsZeitung.
Of those who were open to a third official religion, 19% said "yes" and 20% "probably yes".
