Swiss Officials Reject Muslim Girls Citizenship Papers After They Refuse to Swim in Pool with Boys
The Swiss don’t mess around.
Swiss authorities rejected citizenship papers from Muslim sisters who refused to swim in a pool with boys. The officials rejected their papers because the Muslim girls did not comply with the school curriculum.
No Sharia here. Thank you very much.
“The girls, whose names were not disclosed, said their religion prevents them from participating in compulsory swimming lessons with males in the pool at the same time,” USA Today reported. “Their naturalization application was rejected because the sisters did not comply with the school curriculum, Basel authorities said.”
“In Switzerland, unlike in the United States and many other countries, integration into society is more important for naturalization than knowledge of national history or politics,” USA Today explained. “Candidates for citizenship must prove that they are well assimilated in their communities and respect local customs and traditions.”
