Separate Bathrooms for Muslims?It's separate bathrooms for Muslims now in LaTrobe University in Australia. And why is that?
Victorian Muslim community leader Yasser Soliman said the washrooms were necessary.Why not simply install a lot sink in the antechamber of the prayer room?
He said the separate facilities were also due to concerns from non-Muslim students.
"Muslims need to wash their feet before prayer and in the past there have been complaints about them washing their feet in sinks, so this is a happy medium," he said.
Mr Soliman said most universities provided Muslim-only prayer and washrooms for students.
A La Trobe University spokesman said the washrooms were established with the advice of senior Muslim religious leaders.
