Pakistani humanist denied UK asylum after failing to identify Plato | UK news | The Guardian

This is as obscene as if a refugee claiming to have converted to Christianity were denied on the basis of being unable to answer questions about transubstantiation from the Catholic catechism!

Who the fuck does that twit at the Home Office think he isĀ and where did he get the idea that having maybe taken a philosophy course at uni makes him the arbiter of who is or is not a "humanist". (He clearly didn't learn much from that one barely passed course or he would have been aware of the fact that any philosophical or religious label has a multitude of equally legitimate interpretations - and that anyone who adopts any version of "humanism" can be at risk in a theologically dominated society.)
