Lobby for launch of alternative finance for university fees by September 2018
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 Takaful based 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 encourage students to lobby their Members of Parliament to work to introduce shari’ah finance for funding university tuition fees by September 2018.
