Muslim Students Protest Amsterdam Meditation Room Closure

28 February 2012

The closure of a meditation room at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences has drawn protest from the school’s Islamic students. Without a space to conduct prayer, the students have taken to praying in a stairwell as a form of protest. Muslim students are asking for a space to pray, but a spokesperson for the school says that it is not the responsibility of a public education facility to provide space for religious activities.
