A video went viral this week after two Muslim students from Metro State University (MSU) in Denver, Colorado were verbally accosted for praying in a computer lab.
According to the men, prior to the start of the video, the woman responded to the men beginning their prayers.
The woman called to the front of the room:
â€œDo this somewhere else!â€
She then proceeded to turn the volume up on her computer, blaring music over the sounds of prayer.
In the video, one of the students from MSU is just rolling his prayer mat out on the floor at the front of the computer lab. The room is essentially empty, except for the two Muslim students, the unidentified woman who is potentially a student or staff member and an onlooker who is not pictured.
One of the Muslim students captured the video. His prayers can be heard from behind the camera.
We see first his fellow student, standing at the foot of his prayer mat, beginning to pray, before the other student swings around to capture the woman on camera.
The woman at first ignores the camera. The music on her computer is blaring.
The student continues praying while taking video, and the woman then waves both of her middle fingers at him.
She says and then returns to her computer work:
â€œF–k your religion. I donâ€™t care about your prayers.â€
The man then asks:
â€œHey, whatâ€™s your name?â€
The woman replies:
â€œNone of your god—n business.â€

One of the students identified himself on Twitter, stating:
â€œSo weâ€™re praying Maghreb and this lady starts going off trying to say â€˜DO THIS SOMEWHERE ELSEâ€™ and then starts bumping music. So we confront after and she begins with â€˜F your religion.. F you.. I donâ€™t care about your prayersâ€™ just belligerence. Omar comes to pray and she continues [in the video].â€
The student continues, explaining:
