Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton denied citizenship to five-year-old Mohammad Azan Ghalzai last May after two DNA tests revealed the Australian man who claimed to be his father was not his biological dad.
.

But now the Administrative Appeals Tribunal has ruled the child should be granted citizenship because his “father’’ always believed the boy to be his son.

It said the father had accepted paternity through an Islamic ritual to whisper the name of Allah in the newborn’s ear, and to sacrifice an animal in the name of Allah. He also provided financial, emotional and physical support.

“The Islamic ritual of adhan, whereby the name of Allah and the Professor of the Faith are whispered in the ear of a newborn, was undertaken by a male relative on behalf of the father,’’ the decision states.

“Members of Mr Ghalzai’s family … were present at the baby’s circumcision. And the Islamic ritual of aqiqah, the sacrifice of an animal in gratitude to Allah, was undertaken by members of the family.’’

The application for citizenship by descent was lodged by Sydney man Mohammed Ibrahim Ghalzai, who was born in Afghanistan but took out Australian citizenship in 2004, and lives in Sydney with his first wife and seven children.

In 2012 he flew to Pakistan and used Sharia law to take a second wife, who gave birth to the boy 15 months later.

The department of Home Affairs insisted Mr Ghalzai take DNA tests to prove his paternity, which proved the boy was not his biological son.

However the tribunal ruled Mr Ghalzai was still the boy’s parent and directed the department to grant citizenship by descent.
