Muslim girls must swim with boys: Swiss court

Published: 27 Mar 2012 10:43 GMT+1

A Muslim family in Basel has been fined 1,400 francs ($1,550) for refusing to let its daughters participate in mixed swimming classes.

The family had sought to avoid paying the fine on the grounds that the requirement for the girls to join the swimming lesson infringed on their religious freedom, online news website Le Matin reported.

The parents argued that, in accordance with the teachings of the Koran, they wanted to instil a sense of shame in their children before they reached puberty. Mixed swimming lessons in primary school, the family claimed, would be incompatible with such an aim.

Following the family’s appeal of the original Administrative Court verdict, the Federal Court decided to uphold the fine. The court stated that the obligation to participate in mixed swimming classes did not represent a significant assault on the family’s religious freedom.

  1. Boys and girls swimming together violates their religious principles and is unacceptable for Muslims. If practising their religion makes it impossible for them to live in a civilised country they should move somewhere else more to their liking.

    1. Exactly. If I go to China the LAST thing I would expect is for them to suppress their culture for my convenience. And if the Islamists want to move to the West, the idea that they would put pressure on Western societies to bow to their customs really is the ultimate insult to us. The attitude of the Muslim show us their true intent – to dominate, not to move away from their backward homelands.

      Now, since the West prides itself on its rational approach to life, why is it not acting like it should, given this threat to its very existence? Some bizarre continent-wide version of Stockholm syndrome (irony in that name too!).

  2. Good. Your first mistake was making life in your country too comfortable for them. This will help to put it back in perspective a bit, but it’s really just a tiny step forward.

  3. Dont give these mohammadans an inch they will demand a mile. High time to kick them out of your countries, make it so hard they dont want to stay.
