ZURICH — Lawmakers in Switzerland will soon be considering a bill that criminalizes forced marriage. Supporters of the measure say such marriages are “incompatible with Swiss culture.” Some critics, however, worry that the bill is less about protecting victims of forced marriage than it is about targeting Muslims. The bill goes before the Nationalrat, the lower house of Switzerland’s Federal Assembly, in the upcoming spring session. worldcrunch
Forced marriage is a bad idea. Civilized, compassionate people reject it. The Swiss want to make it criminal.
What has this got to do with Muslims?
Barbaric, backward cultural practices are antithetical to the Swiss. They don’t want such practices in their country. This seems sensible.
But, seriously, what has this got to do with Muslims?
