Cattala bans Minarets and Burkhas

Post by Thomas on 13th July 2010, 21:05

Following a move by the French Lower House, the Royal and Holy Majesty has signed of a Parliamentary bill that will enforce an absolute ban on minarets, burkhas and will limit the building of mosques. A vote was held amongst the 300 MPs, with the Cattolici Conservatori majority government using their 190 votes to push the bill through.
It is believed that all Islamic building applications will face extremely strict planning laws, much stricter than Catholic churches and Jewish synagogues.
Less than 10,000 people in Cattala are Muslim, many are from North Africa. There are 14 mosques in the country, compared to just 3 ten years ago. In a poll last month, over 94% of the public agreed that burkhas should be banned, and around 87% agreed minarets should be made illegal.
However the Islamic Society of Cattala has denounced the move, calling it "racist" and "destructive to equality".

The Fornaxian Government does not support the Cattala Parliamentary Bill as it is racist against the Muslims. Mosques, minarets and burkhas are harmless, yet an important aspect of the Muslim culture. Restricting or banning these important articles of the Muslim culture is as good as taking away a part of a history of the human culture.

This reminds me that funny video from the French movie: OSS 117




Rhodes remain Neutral on this issue as the Muslim community of Rhodes isn't that important and that the Burkha is already banned in all the public institutions.

The Republic of Aleksania will not support a government that supports such raciest activities. Aleksania will support the Muslim community on this issue. This is the kind of thing that can lead to ethnic cleansing and other forms of genocide. The Aleksanian government hopes that Cattala will realize their mistake and correct it.

The Imperial Republic remains neutral on this matter, although we request Cattala to release a statement as to why the ban was placed.

Rhodes and Lanaya would like to know how is it a genocide? Maybe this is a bit kind of assimilation to the laicity, but it's absolutely not a genocide.

Aleks wrote:The Aleksanian government hopes that Cattala will realize their mistake and correct it.

Rhodes People represented by the Parliament hope that Aleksania will realize their mistake of having nuclear weapons and correct it.


Lanaya's position: We remain Neutral on this issue, but we strongely encourage the laicity of all the public institutions.


Rhodes decided to ban the wearing of the Burkha everywhere on the Island.

I say that because in some cases in history this has been the start or prelude to genocide (note I said "CAN").

Next, having nuclear weapons and government sponsored racism are two completely different things.

Arcacia has a similar law, but burkhas and minarets are not specifically mentioned. Persons must have their face visible at all times and be identifiable, and buildings must pass architectural review. Generally, anything that is considered an eye-sore is turned down. Under the law, minarets are considered an eye-sore.

Arcacia's Muslim population is only in the hundreds, with most of them in Redding City. There is a mosque in Redding, but it is very tastefully done.

Most Muslim women choose to wear the veil, but burkhas are generally out of favour among Arcacia's Muslim population who are generally fairly liberal.

Hypertrophy follows a similiarity with Arcacia. While nearly 1 out of 6 citizens in Hypertrophy are Muslim. The Kingdom respects the right of an individuals' religion and custom.

However, Minarets are only allowed in religious ceremonies. But in public places: Airports, Public Transportation, Office Buildings, and Government Buildings. Minarets are considered an eye-sore.. Burkahs are allowed in any place, because it still idnetifies the individual, even if it is partial.

Kingdom of Hypertrophy believes in equality and justice for all of its citiznes.

anarchy, you may not have been here for this, but keep roleplaying in italics.

Illu'a will remain neutral on the matter. Muslims can freely practice their religion in Illu'a unless their religion harms others. Minarets are allowed but are not commonly built. Burkahs are allowed ad long as an individual can be recognized.

At this point, the Tirnreich only enforces Indecent Exposure laws, unless in a nudity-allowed area. Other than that, the only other clothing-focused law is that which you cannot wear masks in a public place, or public or private business. Although, the Tirnreich is considering banning sideways straight-brimmed hats and man-capris.

Corraile officially condemns this move.

Such actions are official discrimination against Muslims and Islam on a whole. Respecting on another's religion is one of the basic fundamentals of humanity, which is sorely lacked around the world. Already, much criticism has been fired at Switzerland and France for banning Minarets and Burqas respectively, and we do not hope to see others ban a symbol of choice and religion.

Therefore, I hope that Cattale will strongly reconsider this ban and re-allow the wearing of Burqas into society. Remember that such laws create discrimination and discontent amongst the Muslim community, which can strike back hard.

I agree with Ray, this is interesting, especially for me because Quebecers all survived, but without changes predominate, a useless report on reasonable accompaniments, a sort of joke about what we should tolerate in our society (Jewish frost the windows of the YMCA, the wearing of Hijab in Sports, Port of Burqa and all the others).

Rhodes will keep its posititon on the issue.

According to the census Tyler wrote on his CJ, Jumaane is a Christian majortity country, with the rest tribal-based religion. Therefore, I believe Muslims are a small-pocket community of Jumaane.

Also, not all of Africa are an Islamic region. Only the Northern Africa.

Hiigaran Confederacy is worried on the matter of not allowing construction of minarets. Hiigaran Confederacy believe in freedom of religion and see that only countries that are afraid or don't understand try to dissolve construction of Minarets. Also we are worried that this law will be also against Kran'et Followers, all Hiigaran Temples request building of towers of prayer. This attack on the muslim community will soon be against Kran'etian Hiigarans, if this happen relationship whit all countries that block construction of Prayer Tower will be against Hiigaran believes and freedom of religion.
