Pregnant Woman Sentenced to Death in Sudan for Becoming a Christian

A 27-year-old woman who is eight months pregnant has been sentenced to death for the high crime of converting to Christianity in the Muslim-controlled nation of Sudan.

On Thursday, the convicted woman’s husband, Daniel Wani, told CNN, “I’m so frustrated. I don’t know what to do. I’m just praying.”

This week a Khartoum court convicted his wife, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, 27, of apostasy, or the renunciation of faith.

Ibrahim is Christian, her husband said. But the court considers her to be Muslim.

The court also convicted her of adultery and sentenced her to 100 lashes because her marriage to a Christian man is considered void under Sharia law.

The court gave her until Thursday to recant her Christian faith — something she refused to do, according to her lawyer.

As CNN reports, the woman “was born to a Sudanese Muslim father and an Ethiopian Orthodox mother. Her father left when she was 6 years old, and Ibrahim was raised by her mother as a Christian.”

But as is the practice in most if not all Muslim countries, whatever your father is, you are too and her father was a Muslim so the law also recognizes her as Muslim despite that she never practiced the faith.

As if this story could get more disgusting, the woman has a 20-month-old son who has also been placed in the prison with her.

CNN further notes:

Sudan is one of the most difficult countries in the world to be a Christian, according to international religious freedom monitors.

Under President Omar al-Bashir, the African nation “continues to engage in systematic, ongoing and egregious violations of freedom of religion or belief,” the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom said in its 2014 report.

The country imposes Sharia law on Muslims and non-Muslims alike and punishes acts of “indecency” and “immorality” by floggings and amputations, the commission said.

“Conversion from Islam is a crime punishable by death, suspected converts to Christianity face societal pressures, and government security personnel intimidate and sometimes torture those suspected of conversion,” said the commission, whose members are appointed by Congress and the president.

The Sudanese government has arrested Christians for spreading their faith, razed Christian churches and confiscated Christians’ property, the commission said.

This backwards, oppressive, inhuman treatment must be stopped. Unfortunately, it is a direct result of Muslim Sharia law.
