Birmingham City Council v Afsar and Others: QBD 18 Jun 2019

The Council sought an interim order restraining a protest outside one of it junior schools against the teaching of certain matters relating to sexual behaviour, sexuality, and gender. The named defendants and, it would appear, a significant proportion of the protestors are of the Muslim faith, advocating what some have described as the ‘conservative values’ of their community.
