Mahasiswa Non-Muslim Jaga Shalat Jumat di Kampus Universitas East Anglia Norwich

Mahasiswa non-Muslim di Universitas East Anglia, Norwich, Inggris, menggelar aksi solidaritas terhadap kawan-kawannya mahasiswa Muslim.

Mereka membentuk pagar betis, mengelilingi teman-temannya Muslimnya yang tengah menunaikan ibadah Shalat Jumat di tengah kawasan kampus.

Mereka harus membentuk pagar betis untuk mengantisipasi pembubaran shalat oleh pihak kampus.

Mahasiswa non-muslim melakukan pagar betis tersebut untuk melindungi mahasiswa muslim dari petugas keamanan kampus yang mungkin akan membubarkan ibadah mereka.

Pelaksanaan shalat jumat di tengah kawasan kampus memang baru kali ini mereka lakukan. Ini terjadi sebagai buntut dari kebijakan pihak kampus yang menutup tempat ibadah umat muslim.

Alhasil, para mahasiswa muslim di kampus ini kehilangan tempat untuk beribadah.

University Of East Anglia Sparks Protests By Closing Muslim Prayer Room A Week Before Ramadan

A university has sparked protests after it announced it will close its dedicated Muslim prayer space just a week before Ramadan.

The University of East Anglia (UEA) is converting the room, currently used by around 600 students and staff, into what the student union calls a “completely unnecessary” corridor to the library.

Dozens of Muslim students protested the decision this afternoon by praying in the centre of the Norwich campus, while others demonstrated with banners and signs reading “Save our space”.

From Monday, Muslim students will have to use the multi-faith centre on campus - a facility deemed “insufficient” by the university’s own student experience committee two years ago.

According to the university, they will also have access to another prayer room, but it is only open in the evenings.

UEA’s student Islamic Society said they were “shocked and appalled” by the announcement.

A petition started by the group has been signed by more than 4,000 people in less than two days. (HP)
