Lack of halal options impacts Muslim students
by Katie Krahulik
Maryum Imam, a senior living on campus, has not eaten meat at Hofstra for three and a half years, not because she is a vegan, a vegetarian or because she dislikes meat, but because she is Muslim.
As a Muslim, Imam only consumes halal meat, which is food that is prepared in adherence to Islamic law, as defined by the Quran.
Hofstra University currently does not offer halal options to students on campus. As a result, Muslim students struggle to find variety in the dining halls, as circumstances have kept them from obtaining a vital part of any well-balanced diet: meat.
