All asylum claims lodged in the UK are carefully considered on their individual merits against a background of relevant case law and up to date country information. We ensure that claimants are given every opportunity to disclose information relevant to their claim under a convention reason as set out in the 1951 Refugee Convention.
The data required to answer the question is not recorded in a way that can be reported on accurately. The Home Office does not electronically record the grounds on which an individual claims asylum and so we cannot iden-tify how many asylum claimants, from a specific country, have been granted asylum due to a religious minority claim. This data could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
However, the Home Office publishes figures on the outcome of all asylum claims in the Immigration Statistics release. A copy of the latest release, Immigration Statistics Year Ending June 2018, is available from https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/immigration-statistics-year-ending-june-2018-data-tables
This data release shows that there have been 2,982 grants of asylum to claimants from Pakistan over the past five year (periods Q2 2013 to Q2 2018).
