Numbering below 1 of total population in 1980, the fraction of muslims in the population of permanent residents in switzerland has quintupled in thirty years, estimated at just above 5 as of 2013. A majority is from former yugoslavia (estimated at 56 as of 2010, most of them from kosovo) an additional 20 (2010 estimate) is from turkey. This is due to the fact that in the 1960s and 1970s switzerland encouraged young men from yugoslavia and turkey to come as guest workers. Initially these young men were only planning on staying in switzerland temporarily, however, revised swiss immigration laws in the 1970s permitted family regrouping. Consequently, these men ended up staying in switzerland as these new laws allowed the wives and children of these young men into the country. Since this time period, most of the muslim immigration to switzerland stems from asylum seekers arriving primarily from eastern europe. The vast majority of muslims in switzerland adhere to the sunni branch. Some famous muslims of switzerland include tariq ramadan, frithjof schuon, titus burckhardt, xherdan shaqiri and isabelle eberhardt.
