Would a court here in a democracy overturn a referendum result due to Swiss Islam?


What I mean is can the Muslims overturn the votes?

    It should because the courts do not just protect majority, they protect minority rights when appropriate. If they just protected majority, they would be supporting someone like Hitler too.

    Understand Switzerland is a democracy.  I think the Muslims are going to need to learn an important rule, secular law overrules religious law in a democracy.  They will have to uncover or leave.

    The Muslims have brought this on themselves by allowing the extremists to carry out their terrorism in the name of Allah.

    But to your point...I would not be surprised if the SCOTUS overturned such a secular law as being prejudicial.

    In the US all of us are protected by the US Constitution; otherwise, you risk "tyranny of the majority," which could mean the majority (such as Christians, white people, middle class people, or urban people) voting in laws that discriminate against smaller groups.
