Muslim students demand prayer space, religious advisor
Muslim students at Columbia University are demanding a full-time religious advisor and a permanent prayer space accessible during academic breaks.
According to The Columbia Spectator, the school’s Muslim Students Association (MSA) met with student government representatives Monday to lobby for the two initiatives, securing pledges of support from several members, but no specific promises.
The most recent demand, originally articulated in a petition crafted by the MSA Executive Board, calls on Columbia to “create a fully-funded, full-time position for a Muslim Religious Life Advisor in the Office of the University Chaplain,” pointing out that several other Ivy League institutions have established similar positions recently in response to President Trump’s executive order on immigration.
“The Muslim community is in need, now more than ever, of institutional support to help cope with the emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical toll these recent political events have on us as students of faith,” the MSA states. “Students who are visibly Muslim, such as women wearing hijab, are increasingly concerned for their safety as they publicly practice and express their faith.”
