This petition is aimed at garnering support for a much-needed prayer space dedicated to the almost 1,000- person strong South Asian religious community represented on BU's campus. Due to the lack of space, many of the religious items/idols have been breaking that have had to be placed in an overcrowded closet.
Let's try to make BU a greater school by giving all groups the respect they need and deserve. Please sign your name below and let your voice get heard!
Allow South Asians to have a dedicated Prayer Space
South Asians comprise over a 1,000 students at BU and are one of the largest minority groups on campus. Nevertheless, BU's administration has denied this group an access to a prayer space, forcing it to use a basement closet that is infested by rats and rain water and empty suitcases to store its idols and religious items causing many of them to shatter and break. It's time for BU to realize that this policy can NOT go unnoticed!
