Muslim Professor at Rollins College Withdraws Court Case Against Christian Student

A Muslim professor at Rollins College accused of making anti-Christian statements voluntarily withdrew her court case against Marshall Polston, the conservative Christian student who challenged her statements.

An Orange County, Florida, Ninth Circuit Court clerk confirmed to CBN News that a judge dismissed the case. Humanities Professor Areeje Zufari had requested a temporary injunction for protection against alleged stalking by Polston.

The court clerk told CBN News the judge dismissed the case after Ms. Zufari failed to appear at a scheduled hearing. She had filed a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal with the Clerk of the Court on April 4, 2017, asking that her case be dismissed.

Polston said there was no evidence that he had stalked the professor and that she had fabricated the allegations against him. Zufari orinally sought the protective order after Polston challenged her for allegedly stating in class that the disciples didn’t believe Jesus was God and that the crucifixion was a hoax.

Eventually, Zufari reported Polston to the “Dean of Safety,” claiming she felt unsafe to even conduct class.

Polston also reported that he was challenged by a radical Muslim student who suggested a “good punishment for gays, adulterers, and thieves was the removal of a certain body part, as determined by Sharia law.”

Polston said the radical statement unnerved him and several other classmates, but said it was only Polston’s responses that were reported to school authorities, leading to a meeting with the Dean where he was informed that his behavior was making the campus “unsafe.”
