في ظل تنامي أعداد الطلاب المسلمين الملتحقين بالجامعات اليابانية، بدأت بعض الجامعات الخطوات الأولى في تلبية احتياجات المسلمين ذات الأبعاد الدينية.
فقد بدأت "جامعة توتوري" بتوفير الوجبات الحلال بعد شكوى الطلاب المسلمين، وكذلك "جامعة ريتسوميكان آسيا باسيفيك" التي حصلت الكافيتريا بها على اعتماد الأماكن الصديقة للمسلمين الذي تَمنحه جمعية الاعتمادات الحلال بـ"اليابان".
ووَفْق بيانات الجامعة، يوجد بها 474 طالبًا من الدول الإسلامية من بين 5881 طالبًا.
وقد أكدت الجامعات أنها ستواصل تقديم المتطلبات الحلال من الأطعمة، فضلاً عن فصل الأواني الخاصة بها عن غيرها من الأواني التي تُستخدم في الطبخ بطريقة لا توافق التعاليم الإسلامية؛ المصدر: شبكة الألوكة.

When Muhammad Saifful Yaser went to the Tottori University cafeteria on Nov. 9, he saw a halal menu posted for the first time.
The Muslim student from Malaysia tried the new curry dish using chicken that has been halal certified.
“At the first bite, I felt happiness. At the second bite, I enjoyed the delicious flavor,” said Yaser, 23, a senior in the university’s Faculty of Regional Sciences. “In the past several years, an increasing number of universities have begun to offer dishes that meet halal conditions. Because of that, I had envied their students. In the future, I want to eat halal-compliant ‘washoku’ (Japanese dishes).”
Tottori University, located in the city of Tottori, is among a growing number of universities offering dishes in their cafeterias that use only ingredients allowed under Islamic law for students from Muslim countries.
Another of the universities is Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU) in Beppu, Oita Prefecture.
On Sept. 30, its cafeteria was certified as a “Muslim friendly facility” by the Nippon Asia Halal Association, an organization that grants the certification. Halal implies food or other products permissible to consume or use under Islamic teachings.
According to APU, as of May this year, 474 of its 5,881 students were from countries that are members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which consists of Muslim countries.
Since APU was founded in 2000, it had offered dishes that do not contain pork, which is prohibited under Islamic law. To give Muslim students peace of mind, the university received lectures and inspections on halal before its cafeteria was certified as halal compliant.
“When I came to this university, I spent some of the first days eating only vegetables and dairy products,” said Mardan Khan Chaudhary Ali, 20, a Muslim student from India. “As the cafeteria received the (halal) certification, I can now eat dishes with peace of mind.”
According to Tottori University, some Muslim students previously complained that the only thing they could eat in the cafeteria was salad. The complaint led the university co-op, which operates the cafeteria, to start talks with foreign students about expanding the menu in spring this year.
As a result of the discussions, the co-op decided to offer curry exclusively for Muslim students. It also decided to separate cooking utensils for the new curry from those for other dishes and prepare it in a different part of the kitchen so that the odor from other meals would not be absorbed into it.
In this fiscal year, about 30 of the university’s foreign students are Muslims, who came from such countries as Sudan and Egypt. On Nov. 9, eight of the 30 students tried the halal curry.
