British pastor Dia Moodley, from Bristol, England, has successfully contested law enforcement’s attempts to limit his freedom of speech on the streets, particularly regarding preaching. Despite initial cooperation with the Avon and Somerset Police about racial abuse he faced, the department later sought to censor his expressions of faith and criticism of other religions or secular beliefs. Supported by ADF International and the Free Speech Union, Moodley highlighted this situation as a violation of the European Convention on Human Rights, spotlighting issues of religious discrimination and freedom of speech overreach by local law enforcement. His case underlines the delicate balance between freedom of expression and the regulation of public discourse in the UK.

Do you believe freedom of speech should have restrictions when it comes to public preaching or expressing religious beliefs?
