Has Obama weighed in yet about the “racism and xenophobia” in Switzerland?

A BURKA BAN has been come into force Switzerland with Muslims who break the new law forced to pay a fine of almost £8,000.

It is now illegal to wear a face veil in public in the Tessin region following the result of a referendum on the issue in 2013, in which 65 per cent voted in favour of a complete ban.

The anti-burka-law, which bans face veils, burkas and the niqab, came into force on July 1 and will be enforced by police in the area….

Anyone caught wearing a veil can be fined up to €9,200 (£7,890).
Of the 350,000 inhabitants in the Italian speaking area about 70 per cent are Roman Catholic and there are barely any Muslim residents.

But it is feared the ban will affect Muslim tourists, who spend each year spend around 40,000 nights in the city of Lugano alone….

The Saudi Arabian embassy in Bern has warned its citizens visiting Switzerland this summer to be careful not to break the law.
