A Sudanese court who gave a 27-year-old �pregnant until Thursday to abandon her newly adopted Christian faith and return to Islam has been slammed with a death sentence.
The judge said at the ruling
“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death
Mariam, whose father is Muslim but raised orthodox Christian by her mother, was earlier sentenced to death by hanging on Sunday May 11th but was given till today May 15th to have a rethink and convert back to Islam before the verdict would be enforced. However during a court appearance today, Mariam maintained that she’s a Christian and there’s no going back.�
“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death.” Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa told the woman in court today, AFP reports
Khalifa also sentenced Ishag to 100 lashes for “adultery”.
�I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy,” she said in court.
Defending the judgement of the Sudanese judge, Ahmed Bilal Osman, Sudan’s information Minister, said such judgement is not only delivered in Sudan but also in other Islamic countries
“It’s not only Sudan. In Saudi Arabia, in all the Muslim countries, it is not allowed at all for a Muslim to change his/her religion.” he told AFP
The death sentence will reportedly be carried out after Ibrahim gives birth.
Meriam’s husband, Daniel, is not allowed to care for their child, Martin, because he is a Christian. Therefore, Martin, almost two years old, is in prison with his mother. Daniel is not allowed to visit or see his son.
