Attorney: Crosses at Catholic University violate human rights of Muslim students Attorney: Crosses at Catholic University violate human rights of Muslim students | syracuse.com It seems that muslim students that went out of their way to go to a Catholic college (private), are now demanding the Catholic college put away symbols of their faith to make a place for muslims to pray without being distracted by Christian symbols. Freedom of religion is being threatened here. The muslims did not need to attend this college, they did it voluntarily. They are not satisfied to pray in their room, adorned to their tastes. They want an area for students to be committed to islam prayer in a Catholic college.
