Muslim students at City University in London are praying in the street since the university closed a special ‘Muslims-only’ prayer room.
(Like raw sewage, these Muslims create a health hazard in the streets of London)
A group of Muslim students now refuse to use the multi-faith facility as they say they cannot pray in a multi-faith room.
The university says it goes against its philosophy to provide a room for just Islamic students.
“ Our needs have been taken away ”

‘The University is a Secular organisation’ “We felt that the provision of a dedicated prayer facility to a sub-section of our Islamic students did not fit with our university’s values,” said Professor Julius Weinberg, who is the acting vice-chancellor at City University.
“We’re a secular organisation. Our university values statement says that we will not discriminate and having a dedicated prayer room actually went fundamentally against the core values of the organisation.” The prayer room was moved for safety reasons after a group of Muslim students were attacked by local youths.
As well as worshipping on the street for the past few weeks, some students have also held prayers in lecture-rooms, corridors and the library. (“Clean-up in aisle 3”)
“Our prayer room has been taken away. We’ve been forced to pray outside. “Our sisters have nowhere comfortable to go to. The prayer room used to be a place where they were comfortable and able to take off their veils.” (Who cares if your bagheads are comfortable?)
“There are many Muslim students belonging to another Islamic society who are very happy to use the shared faith facility we’ve provided and now feel more supported by the university,” said Professor Weinberg. BBC
