Contest for the most beautiful Minarets in Europe

The Swiss referendum, which banned the minarets, not only questions the presence of the Muslim minorities in the society but in reality is a severe blow to the Judeo-Christian traditions of tolerance and goodwill. The advocates of the ban disregarded the fact that Muslim communities have always participated actively and contributed in all areas of progress and development of the society.

The minarets as an integral part of the mosques have been very visible in the European landscape for centuries, going back to the times of Moors in Spain, Ottomans in the Balkans and more recently due to the arrival of migrants and refugees from Muslim countries.
