Atheist Asylum

Still related to my other thread. While I don’t intend to apply for an asylum. Hopefully, I would never find the need to do that. I’m interested in a discussion.
I heard many muslim refugees converted to chritianity to increase their chance to get asylum. What about the skeptics? Do you think an atheist/agnostics have a better chance when applying for an asylum than, let’s say, christians. I know the AAI have the atheist asylum project. But I’ve also heard the Bangladeshi blogger who got killed because his visa application was rejected even with an invitation from IHEU. This is so sad…
How about people who pretend to be atheist? I actually have heard such story.
Here is some interesting article]
