School allowed to ban Muslim pupil's praying
A German federal court on Wednesday backed banning a Muslim pupil from praying according to Islamic rites at a Berlin public school, ruling it could jeopardise its smooth operation.
However, the Leipzig-based federal administrative court found that the right to pray even at school was guaranteed by religious freedom under the constitution.
In the case of the 18-year-old pupil, who took his school to court, it justified the ban at his Berlin high school because the issue of praying had already sparked conflict among Muslim pupils.
