A Muslim organization has been refused access to a communal meeting hall in BÃ¼lach in the Swiss canton of Zurich.
The Islamic Central Council of Switzerland was meant to be holding a conference there but the communal government disallowed the hire of the hall to the organistion.
The executive claims the Islamic Central Council of Switzerland is a religious extremist group.
Various speakers from around the world were expected to attend the conference, called "Islam
Unity 2012", on February 25.
Some 1,800 had people signed up for the event.
The organisation says it will challenge the communal government's ruling.
