The growing Muslim problem in Switzerland

“…The new Muslim demographic reality is raising tensions across large parts of Swiss society, especially as Muslims become more assertive in their demands for greater recognition of their Islamic faith. When in 2011, the immigrant population demanded the Switzerland government to modify the national flag and remove the cross from the flag as it represents the Christian community. The ensuing controversies are fuelling a debate over the role of Islam in Swiss society and how to reconcile Western values with a growing immigrant population determined to avoid assimilation. There are several cases of Mosques inciting hatred against the neutrality of the Swiss Government and forcing the Swiss government to take stand on the current killings of Muslims in Middle East by west forces.”
