The UK recognises there may be individual cases of religious persecution. However, not all Christians are at risk. It is important to carefully consider each case on its merits.
This position was confirmed by the courts in December 2014 in the country guidance case ‘AK and SK (Christians: risk) Pakistan CG  UKUT 569 (IAC)’.
Therefore, whilst the Home Office is always reviewing country of origin information and the accompanying guidance on a particular issue, its position is consistent with the statement made by the Minister of State for International Development, Desmond Swayne, on 11 September.
