The Organization of Islamic Conference urged Swiss authorities Thursday to annul a vote banning the construction of minarets, saying it could fuel similar moves across Europe. Envoys from the pan-Islamic body’s 56 member states brought the request on Thursday to the Swiss ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Dante Martinelli, Pakistani ambassador Zamir Akram said. On Nov. 29, Swiss voters approved a move to ban the construction of minarets. The ban was opposed by the Swiss government, the bulk of Switzerland’s political parties as well as the economic establishment. However, given that most Swiss voters approved it in a referendum, the ban would now be inscribed in the country’s constitution.
