Muslim teen in Switzerland loses appeal, must shake female teacher's hand

Fox News reports:
A 15-year-old Muslim student in Switzerland was told Wednesday that he is required to shake the hand of his female teacher despite his claim that it went against his religious belief, The Independent reported.

The issue started in April, when Amer Salhani and his older brother refused to shake their teacher’s hand at their school in Therwil, which is outside Zurich. The brothers were reportedly granted a waiver but education officials decided that a teacher has the right to demand a handshake.
Maybe, Muslims would be happier in a Muslim majority country?
