We believe in equal access to a university education for all.
Currently, many Muslims are unable to go to university because their faith prohibits them from taking interest based finance to fund university tuition fees.
In September 2014, the government undertook to introduce an alternative interest-free university fee funding structure by September 2016 as outlined here, but have not yet done so, and have repeatedly refused to commit to a date when this model will eventually be introduced.
We feel these delays demonstrate a lack of urgency on the part of the government in addressing the plight of those students currently unable to benefit from a university education.
The Bright and Halal campaign therefore seeks to lobby the main British political parties in the run up to the June 2017 General Election to include a commitment to introduce sharia finance for funding university tuition fees by September 2018.
If you wish to get involved with lobbying for a launch date, please download the Election pledge template letter for a sample email to send to Prospective Parliamentary Candidates standing in your constituency.
