Of course, CAIR litigation jihadists keep referring to it as an “interfaith” prayer space, but as everyone has seen, once Muslims put all their prayer rugs and other religious paraphernalia into the space, no one but Muslims will ever want to or be able to use it.
CAIR On Tuesday, October 11th, the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY), the nation’s largest Muslim special rights and advocacy organization, will join City College of New York (CCNY) Muslim students as they protest and demand that CCNY provide them with an interfaith space for faith-based activities. Protest will include a Muslim prayer near the end. Additionally, the protest will continue on Wednesday and Thursday at the same time and location.
According to CCNY Muslim students, the administration has displaced the
interfaith Muslim prayer space for several years and despite many attempts to force the administration to provide an adequate, appropriate space for interfaith Muslim activities, the CCNY administration has failed Muslim students and dismissed their requests.
Muslim students are disproportionally impacted by CCNY’s failure to accommodate faith-based students because of Muslim students’ religious requirements to pray five times a day. Since CCNY has failed to provide an appropriate interfaith space, Muslims students have been forced to pray is small, cramped areas, including dirty, narrow hallways.
On November 22, CAIR-NY welcomed CCNY’s announcement of an “interfaith” prayer space after Muslim-only student protests.
Ahmed Mohamed, Legal Director at CAIR-NY, said in a statement:
“We welcome CCNY’s decision to respect the religious practices of its Muslim students and provide an appropriate
interfaithMuslim prayer space. For years, this administration had taken steps to marginalize and displace Islam-practicing students.
“A space that promotes Muslim inclusivity and belonging, celebrates (so-called) Islamic religious and spiritual diversity, and accommodates the practices of
religiously-diverseMuslim students is a prerequisite for an institution of higher learning. We look forward to working with CCNY administrators in the future to ensure MUSLIM students have a safe, welcoming school environment.”
Since CCNY had failed to provide an appropriate interfaith space, Muslims students have been forced to pray 5 times a day outside in the cold or in small, cramped areas – including dirty, narrow hallways.
CAIR has been pulling this crap all over the country, not only in colleges, but in elementary and secondary public schools, as well.
