Home Office being ‘unrealistic and discriminatory’ towards Christian convert

17 February 2020

Iranian Christian convert, Reza Karkah, is facing the prospect of imprisonment, torture and even execution if his bid for asylum is rejected by the Home Office. The Home Office previously rejected his asylum application stating that his Christian faith was ‘fabricated’.

Having been baptised and as an active member of his local church, Reza’s conversion puts him in danger of being labelled an ‘apostate’ by the Iranian state. Tim Dieppe speaks to Premier Christian Radio about his case, arguing that “it seems to be easier to claim asylum if you’re a member of the Muslim Brotherhood than if you’re a Christian.”
