Exercise Centre Prayer Ban Not Discrimination
The Ombudsman for Minorities, Eva Biaudet, issued a statement Monday to the effect that a ban on prayer by an exercise centre in Espoo was not a violation of the law on equality. In August of this year, the centre posted a notice requesting clients not to pray in its facilities.
The Ombudsman for Minorities investigated claims that the action by the centre was a violation of the prohibition on discrimination against ethnic minorities.
The note posted at the exercise centre requested clients to refrain from eating and from praying in the facility.
