Multiculti-diversity at its
* The value free, enlightened society of socialist utopianism is ready to prostrate itself for a cult of troglodytes, and far left university professors (are there any other ones?) are the first to bend over to recognize the superiority of a militant 7th century cult:

HALAL food and prayer rooms should be adopted at all universities to help Muslim students meet their religious and educational obligations, a conference heard yesterday.
The religious needs of Muslim university students were addressed at an inaugural conference launched by the University of Western Sydney.

UWS Director of Equity and Diversity Dr Sev Ozdowski said they wanted to develop national standards for Muslim students which could be incorporated by other universities.
The “Access, Inclusion and Success – Muslim students at Australian universities” two-day conference is covering issues relating to gender, discrimination and how to meet the fundamental religious needs of Muslim students.
Dr Ozdowski told The Daily Telegraph the aim of the forum was to raise awareness and to find a way to make sure Muslim students can meet obligations to their religion as well as the university.
UWS already has prayer rooms and halal food at a majority of its campuses for its 2000 Muslim students – the largest tertiary Muslim student population in Australia.
“There is no model or national standard to guide Australia’s universities on how they can best address the varied cultural, ethnic and religious needs of their diverse student populations,” Dr Ozdowski said.
“It’s important that all people, including those from Muslim backgrounds, have the ability to fully participate in higher education so they can gain good employment and strengthen their place in society.
“We also need to address the practical realities that Muslim students face every day, such as providing prayer space and cafeteria food that is halal, to ensure university campuses are welcoming of all cultures and faiths,” he said.
About 150 people are involved in the conference including representatives and speakers from universities and TAFE, the government and local muslim communities.
Muslim student Najwa Hussein – who is completing her post graduate diploma in psychology at UWS – believes the conference is a positive step forward for Muslim students.
“It is part of our obligations to fulfil these religious duties, to pray and to ensure we eat halal meat,” the 21-year-old from Guildford said.
“These small things are part of our daily life so if the universities adopt such facilities, that would be awesome,” she said.
The conference, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Parramatta, concludes today with practical workshops.

UNIVERSITIES have been urged to abandon their long-held commitment to secularism and incorporate a better understanding of religions in their teaching programs.
Gary Bouma, a professor of sociology at Monash University, told a Muslim students’ conference that the secularist stance of universities was no longer appropriate at a time when religion played a more important role in public life. He said secularism was not a neutral stance but was itself an ideology that was inimical to religions.
“Religious diversity is on the increase and religion is back in the public space,” he said. “Secularists have a right to have a voice in universities but not a voice to denigrate or relegate religions to a non-space.”
