Ahmad v UK

In Ahmad v UK [1982] 4 EHRR 126 ECHR, the European Commission of Human Rights held that a local authority's refusal to allow Mr Ahmad time off work on Fridays to attend prayers at a mosque did not infringe his freedom of religion or his right to enjoy rights and freedoms without discrimination.

Mr Ahmad was a school teacher and a devout Muslim.
