Education for Imams...

I wonder how widespread this is.
Muslim students training to be imams at a British college with strong Iranian links have complained that they are being taught fundamentalist doctrines which describe nonMuslims as “filth”.

The Times has obtained extracts from medieval texts taught to the students in which unbelievers are likened to pigs and dogs. The texts are taught at the Hawza Ilmiyya of London, a religious school, which has a sister institution, the Islamic College for Advanced Studies (ICAS), which offers a degree validated by Middlesex University.

The students, who have asked to remain anonymous, study their religious courses alongside the university-backed BA in Islamic studies. They spend two days a week as religious students and three days on their university course.
You'd think that Middlesex University would investigate.

Muslim women are naked under those robes they wear, how can that be better than wearing jeans?

It's definitely comforting to read that the anonymous students interviewed in this article were disturbed by what they were exposed to. One wonders ho many other students sitting in the class felt the same. In one sense, we must be advocates of academic freedom, but in another, we must be wary of freedoms that can threaten our very survival as a civilization.
