Refugees from North Africa and the Middle East who claim to be Christian must prove they are Christian if they wish to receive asylum in Great Britain, a newreport on immigration in the country claims.

According to the report, purported converts to Christianity are being subjected to “Bible trivia” questions before they can receive the all-important asylum designation. They are asked about the Ten Commandments, books of the Bible, biblical personalities and important biblical festivals such as Pentecost.

The questions, however, may not be producing the intended result.

“While the law is clear that religious persecution constitutes grounds for asylum, assessment of religion based asylum applications is complex and challenging due to the inherently internal and personal nature of religion and belief,” the report says.

“This is compounded by the fact that persecution on the basis of religion or belief encompasses a wide range of human rights violations and relates to complex dynamics of communal identities, politics, conflicts and radical organizations.”
