The Human Rights Act 1998 incorporates Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights into UK law.
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.
