The Facts Of The Case [Jul. 18th, 2009|10:35 am]
Tony Grist
You'll remember Azam- no need for secrecy now- the young Pakistani man who wants to convert to Christianity? His uncle found out and- among other things (the other things quite possibly including death threats) - withdrew his sponsorship, which is the one thing that allowed Azam to stay in the country. Azam went on the run and ended up in Liverpool- where he threw himself at the mercy of Customs and Immigration- and asked for asylum. The officials in Liverpool didn't think much of his case and sent him down to Heathrow- where his application was "fast-tracked" and rejected. There may be a legal appeal; Azam's solicitor, Mr Leslie, is looking into this. If not- or if the appeal fails- he will be sent back to Pakistan- where he will be welcomed as an apostate.

That is one of the saddest and most unjust things I've ever heard of.

I feel like a comment is necessary, but I just do not know what to say. I pray for a good outcome.
