Christian accuses Oxford of 'bias'
by Nicholas Hellen
A trainee Church of England priest at Oxford University has accused it of discrimination and bias after he says he was told he could not ask a lecturer critical questions about Islam.
The student has filed a formal complaint to the university's proctors' office in which he claims the lecturer pointed at him in a seminar and said: "Everybody can ask a question except you."
The student, Shahriar Ashrafkhorasani, 33, is an Iranian-born convert from Islam who is set to become a Church of England priest in July, while the lecturer, Minlib Dallh, is a research fellow at Regent's Park College in Oxford on a project about love in religion part-sponsored by the King of Jordan.
