Ban On Minarets Referendum

Geert Wilders' Freedom Party is calling for a referendum on banning the construction of new minarets. According to the party, minarets symbolise Islam's domination over Christianity. The Qu'ran doesn't mention minarets, so the Freedom Party argues that banning them does not violate freedom of religion. The Council of State, the highest legal body in the Netherlands, is now studying the proposal.
