The allegations are stingy. Forced marriages are said to have taken place in Bern’s House of Religions, SRF made public last November. Several women reported that they were married against their will and without prior civil marriage at the mosque located in the house. In Switzerland it is forbidden to religiously marry a couple without prior civil marriage.

Imam Mustafa Memeti (60) from the Muslim Association of Bern, which runs the mosque, was shocked. The mosque was misused for forced marriages.
