More than ten thousand people have signed a petition backing Ahmed Sedeeq.

He believes his life could be in danger if he is deported because he's spoken out against radical islam. He was temporarily released from an immigration centre on Thursday but fears he could be forced to leave at any time - after his student visa expired.
