Swiss Muslim Institutions Oppose Inauguration of Salafi School

Islamic institutions in Switzerland have warned against issuing permission for inauguration of a school belonging to Salafis.

The Islam Society Supporting Social Development, representing a number of Islamic institutions in Switzerland, warned against permission for the school, 20min website reported.

It said in a statement that the Salafist group behind the school seeks to “brainwash children” and spread its radical ideas in society.

The group said issuing permission for this project would mean allowing children to be brainwashed and that would be worrying.

The planned school will have 25 students aged 4 to 6 but it has yet to receive permission from related authorities.
