Prayer room row erupts at Solihull Sixth Form college

Muslim students felt compelled to pray Jummah prayers outside in the cold and rain amid a prayer room dispute at Solihull Sixth Form College.

Students claim the college is “interfering” in Islamic faith matters, including trying to stop gender segregation in the multi-faith prayer room.

Speaking to 5Pillars, a former student explained how the college’s stance is making prayer for Muslim impossible at the college – forcing students outside.
5Pillars attempted to contacted the college and ask for a response or statement on the allegations. The college didn’t respond.
