Mosque Madness German Group Hopes for EU Referendum on Minarets

Just weeks after Swiss voters banned minarets in the country, a German right-wing group is hoping to use a new European Union law to hold a minaret referendum across the 27 member bloc.
Last year, a right-wing group called Pro Cologne tried to prevent the construction of a mosque in the western German city. Now, a related group wants to ban minarets in Europe.
