Haraam and Hallaal

Patrick Ainley in The Guardian: "Fundamentalism on campus takes many forms. A colleague reports that during her history lecture on Darwin, quietly at first, an evangelical Christian student began singing hymns to ward off the evils of evolution. Perhaps, if the student had not been asked to stop and enough of her congregation had joined in, she would have drowned out the lecture. Elsewhere, a veiled Muslim student is accompanied to lectures by a minder who tells her what is haram and what is hallal in what she is hearing."

Do you suppose under that burqa her ears perk up just a little so as not to miss any of the haraam?
