Growing Trend Of Forced Worship In Private Universities
Recently it has come to my attention that private universities especially those from churches are forcing its students to worship in their church denomination regardless of the religion and practice of the person in question.
i had the opportunity to observe a catholic university in Abuja and I was shocked by what I saw,
if a student doesn’t attend any of the church services he/she is suspended for between 2weeks and a month.
Students must attend church service every Wednesday and Sunday failure to do so is suspension.
and these rules are hidden from the student or guardian until they have paid the school fees, it doesn’t matter if you are a Muslim or traditional worshiper you must worship in the schools way and practices.
And I kept wondering how different is this from forced conversion because the person in both cases has no choice be it at gunpoint or at risk of losing outrageous sums of money.
if a Muslim university did this to its students and the churches/Christian community hears of this they would cry foul but no one is complaining or shouting when it’s the other way round.
