The motion reads:
“That this House welcomes the decision of the Equality and Human Rights Commission to intervene in support of four cases involving discrimination against Christians that are presently with the European Court of Human Rights; notes that this is a long overdue recognition of the need to defend religious liberty and marks an important development in relation to a better understanding of the role of faith in public life; and further welcomes the Commission's advocacy for reasonable accommodation in the workplace as an acknowledgement of the place of conscientious objection for those with religious belief.”
A “reasonable accommodation” of religion and belief in the workplace and in public life is of particular significance to Muslims given recorded incidents of workplace discrimination on grounds of religion and in light of the growing number of attacks on Muslim individuals and property.
If your MP is not among those that has signed the motion, please urge them to do so.
