London, Apr 13 (ANI): The London Metropolitan University's Vice-Chancellor is planning to have alcohol-free areas for Muslims as it is considered evil and immoral.
Prof Malcolm Gillies wants ban the sale of alcohol in parts of the campus because for many Muslims, the drinking culture among students marred rather than heightened their student experience.
About a fifth of students at the university come from Muslim families - many of them young women from traditional homes, The Telegraph reports.
Prof Gillies, an eminent Australian music scholar, said that he was consulting with staff and students about creating alcohol-free areas on the universty's two campuses as part of a major redesign.
It is expected that the informal dry areas will be created within the next six months.
Anti-alcoholism campaigners and the Methodist Church, which has a strong tradition of campaigning against excessive drinking, welcomed his comments.
Prof Gillies detailed his plans during a discussion on how to accommodate minorities at a national conference for university officials earlier this month.
"It's a negative experience - in fact an immoral experience - for a high percentage of our students," he said. (ANI)
