Supreme Court upholds decision on Islam centre
Switzerland's highest court has declared invalid a controversial proposal to close an Islamic training centre at Fribourg University.
The judges ruled that the initiative by the rightwing Swiss People's Party was in violation of anti-discrimination rules in the Swiss constitution, according to a court statement on Wednesday.
It said that the promoters of the initiative justified their proposal mainly with anti-Islamic reasons.
The Fribourg cantonal parliament last year decided not to let voters have the final say on the initiative, prompting the People's Party to appeal.
