The Home Secretary Roberto Maroni, representative of the Lega Nord Party, has expressed his concern towards Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism that is creeping especially in the North of Italy. In this sense, he interprets the Swiss vote as the natural outcome of a legitimate preoccupation that he fully subscribes. The
minarets, in fact, are the symbols of the political ambition of Islam. Politics has the role, in his perspective, to challenge the dangerous union of Politics and religion that pertains specifically to Islam.
He alluded to the possibility of running consultative referenda about the building of Islamic worship spaces. He also expressed the intention to subscribe a security agreement between the Police forces and the local governments in the area of Como, Lago Maggiore and Lago di Lugano (North) in order to prevent possible terrorist attacks.
