News to rejoice Muslim hearts

Because that's what the UK taxpayers and Brummie tuition-payers want from their libraries and universities, to rejoice Muslim hearts. Not to advance the state of scholarship; not to learn how to navigate life after college.

I can understand this sentiment from Islamic Awareness; that's what they do. I don't appreciate it from the Lead Curator for Persian and Turkish Manuscripts at the British Library. And why the University of Birmingham feels it has to pass on such prattle, and why Archaeology Online can't be bothered to fact-check such claims before laundering them further - well, that's a question that needs to be posed to both institutions.

As for the BBC, I can also understand why they're loath to dismiss a religion that lowers the age of consent to nine. So I'll leave them alone.
