Ahmed Hassan started this petition to Bradford Council

As many muslims will know, prayer is a crucial part of a muslims daily life. In the UK, when winter comes, the prayer times will move into the school day. In addition to this, the friday prayer is a significant component of Islam and always falls in the school day, no matter what the season. Many students in UK schools therefore require an area to pray. Unfortunately this isnt provided in many schools at the moment. In Bradford alone there are over 120,000 muslims. The right to manifest beliefs-including taking part in religious worship-is covered by Article 9 of the Human Rights Act 1998. It is dissapointing to see many schools and a few colleges not providing a room for prayer. Other religions also need prayer rooms, hence it is crucial a room is provided. This petition is to get a room for those who need to pray wether muslim, christian or any other religion-they have a right to practice their religion. Even a temporary room is better than nothing and students dont even need to miss lesson time as prayers can be done in break and lunch times. Thank you for supporting this cause.
