Why have minarets been banned in Switzerland? The story of this bizarre move which has puzzled the Muslim community and seen other religious leaders come out and state their opposition to the referendum that banned minarets from standing atop Mosques in Switzerland has caught the world's attntion. So where did it start? What can possibly have been the motive for such a ban and how have Switzerland's Muslims reacted. In short, not surprisinlgy, they're hurt, confused and offended.
