I don't have problem with popular and democratic vote. For me, the real problem that comes out of this vote has nothing to do with minarets, religion or cultural issues. It has to do with democracy and human rights. Contrary to our earlier believe that the more democratic a nation is the more it repsects human rights is not a correct one. Here, article 18 of the universal declaration of human rights, were put aside through a popular and democratic vote. I can see the flood gates opening now, any state can now see fit to do away what it does not want through a democratic vote. Swiss are just following the recent Uganda's legislation that meted the death sentence the minority groups (gays/lesbians) in Uganda.
