Muslims are united by religious identity but are diverse in terms of beliefs and practices. The manner of prayer, dietary restrictions, sexual ethics etc. differ on the basis of the school of jurisprudence. There are multiple intersections that lead to wondrous differences.
Exclusivist, sexist and homophobic viewpoints sold in the name of religion must be fully challenged and resisted. Diversity allows for the drowning out of extreme voices. This means Muslim students on campus and Muslims in the community must strive for plurality of religious spaces.
