Ontario university defends decision to kick non-Muslim out of course that teaches Islamic preaching
by Jen Gerson
A London, Ont., university is defending its decision to restrict access to a course that teaches Muslims how to proselytize.
The Huron College course — The Muslim Voice: Islamic Preaching, Public Speaking and Worship — was, according to the syllabus, "open to Muslim men and women who offer religious leadership and/or speak publicly about Islam on behalf of their communities."
The school allowed a non-Muslim to enrol in the course, but then kicked him out because, they said, they didn't want to open the course to auditors. That student, Moray Watson, is an accountant who says he is an opponent of Islamic extremism and enrolled in the course partly to test the prerequisite in the syllabus.
