University to have alcohol-free areas for Muslims
by John Bingham
A university Vice-Chancellor is planning to ban the sale of alcohol in parts of the campus because some Muslim students believe it is "evil" and "immoral".
Prof Malcolm Gillies of London Metropolitan University said he wants to create alcohol free areas on campus out of "cultural sensitivity".
About a fifth of students at the university come from Muslim families – many of them young women from traditional homes.
