    GENEVA: Swiss authorities have rejected the naturalisation application of two Muslim girls who refused to take swimming lessons at their school alongside boys, reported USA Today.

    The girls, aged 12 and 14, refused to take the compulsory lessons claiming their faith prevents them from swimming with males.

    The Basel residents had applied for the Swiss citizenship a few months ago but their application was rejected because they "did not comply with the school curriculum", local authorities were quoted as saying.

    "Whoever doesn’t fulfill these conditions violates the law and therefore cannot be naturalised," Stefan Wehrle, president of the naturalisation committee, told TV station SRF on Tuesday, according to USA Today.

    The case is another example of Swiss authorities' reluctance to grant citizenship to those who balk at accustomising with any aspect of Swiss culture.

    Earlier in 2012, a family was fined $1,500 for forbidding their daughters to participate in swimming classes.

    In April this year, the Swiss authorities put a halt to the naturalisation applications of two Muslim brothers, aged 14 and 15, who refused to shake hands with their female teacher.

    They informed their school that physical contact with women who are not family members violated their Islamic faith.

    The boys were then exempted from a Swiss custom of pupils shaking teachers’ hands, with officials instructing them to avoid contact with male teachers as well to avoid gender discrimination. However, the Swiss authorities later reversed the school's decision

    "A teacher has the right to demand a handshake," said a statement released by the authorities.

    On topic...Good work by Swiss!

    I think Swiss are one of the few BRAVE and practical small nations like Slovakia,Poland who don't want Muslims since they would change their culture and make million of mosques.Whereas UK/Germans/French/Sweden et al have destroyed their country in the name of Cultural Enrichment and suffering.

    On the other continent, Japan has now officially allowed for continued surveillance of all muslims in Japan. Anyways thet were already doing it behind closed doors. Now they will openly do it.

    If they must live in Switzerland, they must adapt to the Swiss culture. If they don't like it, they are free to move to Saudi Arabia and wear a tent. Enough of this hypocrisy. I suspect it is more about the parents who pressurized the girls, and not so much about the girls themselves.

    The reason we don't hear any suicide bombing/blast etc in Japan.

    They would survive this disease.

    Hats off to Japan.
