Victory! Miracle halts Azeem Wazir's deportation | Home office grants discretionary leave

Azeem Wazir celebrating the reversal of the Home Office decision

Azeem Wazir who faced the death penalty if he was deported to Pakistan is celebrating the reversal of the Home Office decision and giving thanks to God.

Azeem Wazir was accused of 'dishonouring the religion of Islam, prophets, Quran and Muhammad' and a fatwah was placed against him because of his protests against the Blasphemy law and his involvement in the campaign 'Stop Killing Christians'.

Azeem Wazir's been given permission to stay in the UK for at least the next 30 months. In that time he hopes his appeal for permanent asylum will be approved. He said: "It is a miracle for me. I was talking to God and saying, "God I need a miracle. I'm very thankful to God, and all the people who signed my petition or prayed for me. All the churches and all the Christian community."

Over 16,000 people signed the online petition. Your prayers and support and the attention the petition attracted in the media and with decision makers has been invaluable.

"I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds." (Psalm 9:1)
