German Maths Professor Fired Over Islam Criticism
by Chris Tomlinson
A mathematics professor at a German university was fired after he gave students problems to solve in class critical of Islam.
The Berlin School of Economics and Law (HWR) and the University of Applied Sciences (HTW) have both distanced themselves from mathematics lecturer Wolfang Hebold after complaints from students that he had used mathematical problems that were critical of Islam in his statistic courses. The HWR said Hebold had published, "discriminatory, xenophobic and misogynistic forum entries," Junge Freiheit reports.
According to one student in Berlin the professor had made them calculate the relationship between Muslim populations and suicide bombings saying "we were to calculate the statistical relationship between the number of terrorist attacks and the proportion of Muslims in the population." Students were also asked to calculate the rate of female genital mutilation in Egypt.
