    All credit for raising the profile of these stations has to go to Ajit - not to the press or indeed Transport for London - their imagination stretches only as far trying to steal Ajits ideas!

  • Comment on: Will “dangerous hate preacher” Donald Trump be banned from the UK? This petition is close to making that happen

    In the United States the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof".

    In a 1979 consultation on the issue, the United States Commission on Civil Rights[1] defined religious discrimination in relation to the civil rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Whereas religious civil liberties, such as the right to hold or not to hold a religious belief, are essential for Freedom of Religion (in the United States secured by the First Amendment), religious discrimination occurs when someone is denied "the equal protection of the laws, equality of status under the law, equal treatment in the administration of justice, and equality of opportunity and access to employment, education, housing, public services and facilities, and public accommodation because of their exercise of their right to religious freedom."
