Tax Exemptions for Prayer Rooms

This is Money [UK]

Prayer rooms – fact or urban myth?

We went to look at a house to rent and the owners, who were immigrants, told us we would not be able to use one of the rooms as it was a prayer room and it would be kept locked.

Friends have told me this was so the family could claim exemption from council tax on religious grounds. Is this true?
