Muslim asylum seekers converting to Christianity to stop deportation from Europe

muslim converted to christiannews5sf54f54sf54Church leaders have seen a spike in new arrivals, mainly from Iran, asking to be baptised after finding a loophole in the immigration system.
After they have converted, they tell the Home Office their new faith would open them up to persecution such as torture, or even execution if they are deported back to their home country.
Church leaders said being baptised can “significantly enhance” asylum seekers’ odds of being granted refuge in the UK.
