Student Suspended By Muslim Prof For Blasphemy, Dean Issues Stunning Response

A white, Christian student is alleging he was suspended from Rollins College for daring to disagree with his Muslim prof’s anti-Christian assertions, including a claim that Jesus’ crucifixion was a hoax.

The student, 20-year-old Marshall Polston, is a sophomore at the private, Florida college. He says that the professor of his Middle Eastern Humanities class also informed students that Jesus’ disciples did not believe he was God.

Polston, a world traveler and a Christian, has toured the Middle East and claims to be knowledgeable about Islamic culture.

“Honestly, it reminded me of some of the more radical groups I researched when abroad,” Polston remarked in an interview with the media about his professor’s comments.

“Whether religious or not, I believe even those with limited knowledge of Christianity can agree that according to the text, Jesus was crucified and his followers did believe he was divine… he went on. “Regardless, to assert the contrary as academic fact is not supported by the evidence.”

Polston also said he is upset he was suspended from school and has hired an attorney.

“Our university should be a place where free-speech flashes and ideas can be spoken of without punishment or fear of retribution,” Polston noted. “In my case it was the total opposite. … I came forward with the story because I know so many other students like me suffer under today’s liberal academic elite.”

The professor, Areej Zufari, nor a Rollins College spokesperson, were available to comment for this story.

According to Polston, the problems started when he challenged Zufari’s claims regarding Jesus and his disciples. This strictly verbal challenge led Zufari to file a complaint with the college administration, claiming that Polston made her feel “unsafe.”

Polston also notes he was given a grade of 52 on a major essay for the class.

One day in class, Zufari led a discussion about the application of Sharia Law. Polston says that as a part of this discussion, a male Muslim student shockingly stated that gays and adulterers should be beheaded under Sharia Law.

“I spoke out to the professor about the grade and subsequently the decapitation comments made by the student,” Polston commented to the media. “The statement by the conservative Muslim student met such fear by some that one of the students reported it to the FBI.
Later, I was reported by the professor to the dean of campus safety.”

Polston explains he felt forced to contact the press and take legal action: “The situation was surreal. We’ve already had one too many attacks in Orlando, and as an avid traveler I realized this was the perfect example of ‘see something, say something.’”
