Islam in classrooms

Reader comment on item: Islamists Police the Classroom [at the University of South Florida]

Submitted by HArry Welelr (United States), Jan 5, 2004 at 22:49

I would hardly criticize Muslims for wanting to monitor how their religion is portrayed in a secular setting. Rather, I am concerned that within what is supposed to be the "intellectual freedom" of the college classroom, any professor would be intimidated by their antics.
Are professors incapable of defending their "critical views" of Islam? If so, why are they teaching at the college level?
"Campus Watch" should be troubled by these questions.
