A deputy head teacher who said that gay people should be eradicated has lost his latest attempt to get his job back.
Razwan Faraz's claim for unfair dismissal has been thrown out by an employment judge. Mr Faraz had alleged that he was the victim of religious discrimination when he was sacked for making homophobic comments.
In May 2013 he had shared a link to a newspaper article on gay marriage in which he said: "These animals are going out full force. As teachers we must be aware and counter their satanic ways of influencing young people." In another conversation in September that year, discussing a BBC article on a shrine in Karachi being used as a meeting place by gay men, he said: "May Allah further expose this and give us the strength to deal and eradicate it."
