Rollins College suspended a Christian student for challenging his Muslim professor over her controversial claims about Christianity, according to the website Central Florida Post. The report states that student Marshall Polston, identified as a Christian conservative, challenged his “Muslim Humanities” Professor Areeje Zufari over her “assertion that the crucifixion of Jesus was a hoax and that his disciples did not believe he was God.” “It was very off-putting and flat out odd,” Polston told the Post. “I’ve traveled the Middle East, lectured at the Salahaddin University, and immersed myself in Muslim culture for many years. Honestly, it reminded me of some of the more radical groups I researched when abroad.” Polston says shortly after he challenged her on the belief, Zufari failed him on a major essay, refusing to provide more details as to why she gave him a 52 percent grade. Continuing with the Post account, Zufari then reported Polston to the college’s office of campus safety for making her feel “unsafe.” She apparently posted on Facebook asking the local chapter of the ACLU for advice over what she called her student’s “hate speech.” Rollins College’s dean of students sent Polston a suspension letter on March 24, 2017, which was posted online. The letter says the student’s “actions have constituted a threat of disruption within the operations of the College and jeopardize the safety and well-being of members of the College community and yourself.” Finally, Zufari filed a police report against Polston for allegedly violating the suspensions order for him to have no contact with her. The report accuses Polston of staring through a glass door into Zufari’s classroom and then disappearing. Polston says he was nowhere near campus that day and even provided a video still from a restaurant surveillance video to back up his claim. He tells the Post he thinks it’s “shameful” Zufari lied to the police.
