College Professor Claims He Was Fired for Being White and Christian

Professor Malory Nye worked at the Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education for 8-years, until he was allegedly fired for being Caucasian and Christian.

The school is in Dundee, Scotland and allegedly dismissed Nye because his race and religion were seen as a threat to its Muslim values.

“It is clear to me that there is collusion between individuals that I should be removed from my position on the basis that I am not an Arab and not a Muslim and that the person who has the role of principal should be Arab and/or Muslim,” said Nye.

His wife, Isabel Campbell-Nye, 42, was also working at the college at the time and claims she has been the subject of rebuke. She says her marriage was the reason she was bullied out of her job as head of the college’s English language centre.

The couple is going to take the college to an employment tribunal claiming racial and religious discrimination, and unfair dismissal.

“I believe that such inclusive multiculturalism no longer fits the particular type of multicultural vision of certain managers and the chairman –that is accepting of different cultures, so long as the majority of students are Muslim and/or Arabs and the ethos is distinctly Islamic,” said Nye.

    I don’t think race or creed is the reason. There might be thousands of reasons – shortage of work, moral turpitude, sexual scandal, lack of skill, non-offering the subject, low enrolment of his subjects, shortage of budget, education and service cut down, etc. Since he is Christian and white and works in a Muslim school, it might his ulterior motive to jump on religious sentiment and put the blame on Muslim. If the school were non-Muslim and run by white people, would he say what he has said?

    But the school is Not non-muslim and its NOT run by white people. the interesting part is that you went on the defence immediately . i would have to read more about the schools response to this whole issue and if it is some stupid reason then the school is guilty. corporations hide behind the lengthy legal system and if the school has done this because of discrimination reason right now they are running to the hills hiding things and making up things. if they have done nothing wrong then they have nothing to hits.
