Beliefs This is how Cologne Cathedral usually looks at night
Beliefs Due to a rise in numbers of people marching in Germany against immigration and Islam the Cathedral in Cologne turned off its lights. This wasn’t the only famous public building to do this.

By law you can be any religion you like, you can change faith, or you can be agnostic or atheist. It’s against the law to treat people differently because of their beliefs. The Equality Act protects people from discrimination because of religion or religious or philosophical belief… People are also protected from being discriminated against because of lack of religion or belief, so they cannot be treated less favourably because they do not follow a certain religion or have no religion or belief at all.
Like the rest of the UK. Tower Hamlets constantly changes too. Who recognises this building? • 1743: Huguenot chapel • 1809: Wesleyan chapel • 1819: A Methodist chapel • Late 19th Century: Jewish synagogue • 1976: Became a mosque
In Tower Hamlets, as in Germany, community and faith leaders oppose prejudice and intolerance. They support religious freedom.
We all have different beliefs We should celebrate this!
