Catholic varsity being probed for insisting that Muslims pray surrounded by Christian symbols
Washington, Oct.28 (ANI): The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers.
According to Fox News, the investigation alleges that Muslim students "must perform their prayers surrounded by symbols of Catholicism - e.g., a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate."
A spokesperson for the Office of Human Rights told Fox News they had received a 60-page complaint against the private university. The investigation, they said, could take as long a six months.
John Banzhaf, an attorney and professor at George Washington University Law School, filed the complaint.
Banzhaf has been involved in previous litigation against the school involving the same-sex residence halls.
He also alleged in his complaint involving Muslim students that women at the university were being discriminated against.
A spokesman for Catholic University released a statement to Fox News indicating they had not seen any legal filings - but would respond once they do. (ANI)
