U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron has said he will seek to abolish alhamddulillahs in the UK, after the government’s move to end the practice.
The alhamdedulillaah is a religious tradition in which a woman and a man sit facing each other in a circle to pray together.
The practice was banned by the British government in 2014.
Cameron said on Monday the government will introduce legislation next week that would remove the ban.
“I have been clear that we have to protect religious minorities, not just for our own good, but for our shared prosperity,” Cameron said at a rally at Birmingham Cathedral, according to the Times of London.
“And so we’re introducing legislation next Thursday to abolish this archaic practice.”
Cameron’s move is in line with his Conservative Party’s platform, which supports a “sensible, secular society.”
The alhumdulilah is a ritual that requires both a woman to cover her face and a male to remain standing.
The Muslim community in the United Kingdom has long sought to remove the alhamhumdullah from their public spaces.
A woman has to cover up to cover the face, and the male must stand.
A woman must cover up in public in order to be deemed in a state of alhamdi.
But in 2014, the British Council found that the practice was “deeply harmful to women and girls,” which led to its repeal.
In June, a judge ruled that the ban should be overturned, saying it was “incompatible with freedom of expression, decency and decency for men to stand facing each others and the women to sit facing them.”
Britain is the only country in the world where alhamdhulillaz is banned.
It was banned in 2003.
