Petition Muslim Council Tax Exemption
This petition has been identified as misleading.
You can find out more here:
Muslims who use their living area's within their homes as a place of Worship, are exempt from paying Council Tax.
This however does not apply to other religions.
In general, I would like this petition to urge the Government to see that regardless of a home being used as a home, or as a place of worship, Council Tax should still be paid as A) It would be used as a house if not and is being used as a house anyway and B) Other religions are not treated the same in this instance. E.g. If a Christian was to change their Living Room in their home into a Church area or place of prayer, that person would still be required to pay Council Tax. Why?
Non believers of religion are also being discriminated here.
