I have no problem with this at all.
Atheist Afghan granted religious asylum in UK
An Afghan citizen has been granted asylum in the UK for religious reasons – because he is an atheist.
The man fled to the UK from a conflict involving his family in Afghanistan in 2007, aged 16, and was allowed to stay in the UK until 2013.
He was brought up a Muslim, but during his time in the UK became an atheist, his legal team said.
They said he would face persecution and possibly a death sentence if he was returned to Afghanistan.
The team was from the University of Kent’s Law School which offers legal services through its Kent Law Clinic.
The decision represents an important recognition that a lack of religious belief is in itself a thoughtful and seriously-held philosophical position”
