Foot Bathers Of The World Unite! ... Ritual Purity For All!

Thanks to BlaCaFu for the burr under the saddle

New University of Regina bathroom facilities help Muslim students prepare for prayer

The University of Regina is going to great lengths to help its Muslim students avoid doing the same when washing for on-campus prayer sessions.
The university has installed “foot-baths” in a public washroom at its Riddell Centre, in order to allow Muslim students — many of whom pray numerous times a day, and wash themselves beforehand — to clean their feet in a way that isn’t awkward and difficult through a use of regular sinks.
“I’ve seen them do it. It’s tough for them,” Nathan Sgrazzutti, president of the U of R Students Union, said on Tuesday of the troubles that many of the more than 700 practising Muslims at the campus had experienced when preparing for prayers.
“We’re showing our ability to cater to their needs.”

... a few thoughts:
1. Here's a dumb question. Is this washroom "racially" segregated?
I mean, according to Islamic doctrine a Kafir should not desecrate (I mean make ritually unclean) a Muslim's toilet. "... avoid using their toilet which could cause uncertainty in the mind of the host and/or hostess regarding "ritual uncleanness." ... http://goo.gl/OpXgnY. ... This kind of thing is catching on ... Here Are More Muslim Only Toilets ... http://goo.gl/aL8eNN.


2. The act of proffering Islamic Footbaths is by default discriminatory and it is an egregious affront to celebrants of other religions (whether they require foot baths, or not).

... I think it only fair that every university should now make 

available the "Muslim Only" Foot Bath Stations to all religious 

groups that require ritual purity. 

... Could you just imagine the Muzzy Outcry:

... Worship! ... Worship! ... Worship!
