Iranian Christian Convert Granted Asylum in the United States


We are pleased to report that the ACLJ has successfully represented
an Iranian man who converted from Islam to Christianity and applied for
asylum in the United States.

Our client grew up in a Muslim family, but eventually began to
question his Islamic faith. Although Islam was instilled in him as the
one true religion at a young age, as our client grew older, he became
concerned with the strict and rigid application of Islamic doctrine to
Iranian society. His discontent with Islam culminated in a vivid dream
in which Jesus Christ revealed himself to our client. This dream had a
profound impact on our client, that changed his life forever.

After his dream, our client came to the United States in pursuit of
an education. After his arrival, our client befriended several
Christians who helped spark his interest in Christianity. With
encouragement from these friends, he began attending church and Bible
studies. These Christian friends were able to mentor and tutor our
client, and ultimately helped him take the final step in converting to
Christianity.

After his conversion, our client requested the ACLJ’s help in
representing him in his asylum case in the United States. Today, we are
happy to report that our client has been granted asylum. This decision
ensures our client’s safety, in that he will not be forced to return to
Iran, where he would almost certainly face persecution on the basis of
his Christian faith, like Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani and many others who are languishing in Iranian prisons.

This case highlights the fact that religious persecution is a daily
occurrence in other countries. Christian converts regularly face not
only social exclusion, but also real threats of physical harm. The ACLJ
is extremely pleased with the outcome of this case and will continue to
fight to protect those who express and exercise their Christian faith.
