The Baksh family fled Pakistan after being implicated in a false blasphemy charge that led to the extrajudicial killing of two pastors who had only hours before been acquitted of all charges.

Now Maqsood Baksh who has ataiend two masters and his wife a qualified nurse want to stay in Scotland. A country where they feel safe and have not been given the opportunity to benefit the country but desire greatly to live normal lives like the rest of us free from the oppression they faced in their homeland.

Sadly the Home Office has denied their initial applicatiosn for asylum all their appeal and now the family are forced to initate a legal challenge against the Home Office decision backed by the Church of Scotland and MP Paul Sweeney.

A plea has been made to Prime Minister Theresa May and by signing this petition we call or the UK Home Office to allow asylum to the family. We call on Theresa May to call for a review of the current Home Office Pakistan Country Guidance which deems Pakistani Christians to be severely discriminated and not persecuted a stance that has permitted hundreds of asylum seekers to be failed by a flawed process.
