Yes it is a mosque held in a trust, so in essence they can exclude anyone they like for any reason as long as it is not based on discrimination on a protected characteristic such as race and even then there are some exceptions e.g. they can discriminate on religious grounds. Therefore, you would have no basis for legal action. I trust this assists

They cancelled my membership because they accused me of data leak.

I understand, as I said, they can cancel it if they wish to provided this is not based on discrimination related to a protected characteristic which it is not so there is no basis for a legal challenge. I trust this clarifies
