British Muslims have always expressed their displeasure for their situation in the British Higher education system. Unlike other religious groups such as Christians and Jews who have mostly found their place in the system due to their long history in Britain, Muslim students have always found it difficult to live in the system that at best tries to tolerate rather than welcome them. Thus, most of the time there is a lack of basic services including prayer facilities in the campus.
In a recent example of this, the University of East Anglia decided to close their prayer room which in return received negative reactions from the Muslim students.
