Sudanese woman sentenced to death for apostasy

KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — A pregnant Sudanese woman who married a Christian man was sentenced to death Thursday after she refused to recant her Christian faith, her lawyer said.

Meriam Ibrahim, whose father was Muslim but mother was an Orthodox Christian from Ethiopia, was convicted of "apostasy" on Sunday and given four days to repent and escape death, said lawyer Al-Shareef Ali al-Shareef Mohammed.

The 26 year old, who is eight months pregnant, was sentenced after that grace period expired, Mohammed said.

Amnesty International immediately condemned the sentence, calling it "abhorrent." The U.S. State Department said it was "deeply disturbed" by the sentencing and called on the government to respect the right to freedom of religion.

Mohammed, the lawyer, called the conviction rushed and legally flawed since the judge refused to hear key defense witnesses and ignored constitutional provisions on freedom of worship and equality among citizens.

Ibrahim and Wani married in a formal church ceremony in 2011 and have a son, 18-month-old Martin, who is with her in jail. The couple runs several businesses, including a farm, south of Khartoum.

Sudan's penal code criminalizes the conversion of Muslims into other religions, which is punishable by death.

As in many Muslim nations, Muslim women in Sudan are prohibited from marrying non-Muslims, though Muslim men can marry outside their faith. By law, children must follow their father's religion.

Sudan introduced Islamic Shariah laws in the early 1980s under the rule of autocrat Jaafar Nimeiri, a move that contributed to the resumption of an insurgency in the mostly animist and Christian south of Sudan. An earlier round of civil war lasted 17 years and ended in 1972. The south seceded in 2011 to become the world's newest nation, South Sudan.

Sudanese President Omar Bashir, an Islamist who seized power in a 1989 military coup, says his country will implement Islam more strictly now that the non-Muslim south is gone.

A number of Sudanese have been convicted of apostasy in recent years, but they all escaped execution by recanting their new faith. Religious thinker and politician Mahmoud Mohammed Taha, a critic of Nimeiri and his interpretation of Shariah, was sentenced to death after his conviction of apostasy. He was executed in 1985 at the age of 76.

Mohammed said he intends to appeal Ibrahim's conviction.

"The judge has exceeded his mandate when he ruled that Meriam's marriage was void because her husband was out of her faith," Mohammed told The Associated Press. "He was thinking more of Islamic Shariah laws than of the country's laws and its constitution."

He said Ibrahim's Muslim father left her mother when she was a child and her mother raised her as a Christian.

The court in the capital, Khartoum, also ordered that Ibrahim be given 100 lashes for having what it considers sexual relations with her husband, Daniel Wani, a Christian from southern Sudan who has U.S. citizenship, according to the lawyer and judicial officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. Wani was acquitted of a charge of harboring an apostate, according to another defense lawyer, Eman Abdul-Rahim.

Wani fled to the United States as a child to escape the civil war in southern Sudan but later returned, she said.

Amnesty called the sentence a "flagrant breach of international human rights law."

"The fact that a woman could be sentenced to death for her religious choice, and to flogging for being married to a man of an allegedly different religion, is abhorrent and should never be even considered," Amnesty said in a statement, quoting its Sudan researcher, Manar Idriss.

Ibrahim's case first came to the attention of authorities in August, when members of her father's family complained that she was born a Muslim but married a Christian man.

They claimed that her birth name was "Afdal" and that she changed it to Meriam. Mohammed said the document produced by relatives to show she was given a Muslim name at birth was a fake. Ibrahim refused to answer Judge Abbas Khalifa when he called her "Afdal" during Thursday's hearing. Meriam is a common name for Muslims and Christians alike.

"I was never a Muslim. I was raised a Christian from the start," she said.

Authorities first charged her with having illegitimate sex last year but she remained free pending trial. She was charged with apostasy and jailed in February after she declared in court that Christianity was the only religion she knew.

It just goes to show how dangerous this religion is. No matter where you look in the world this cancer is killing and destroying people and societies and the biggest loser seems to be females. Total repression by banning education and freedom to think and act as a free individual. I lived in the middle east for a while among the Arab population and witnessed first hand how they treated their females. Women were just property and their status was just above a donkey.

During my time there on one occasion a pregnant women in labour arrived at our medical facility. She was having problems with delivering her baby and the local witch doctor/women who assisted with birthing couldn't do anything to help so the husband decided to bring his women to our medical section and asked for help. To cut a long story short....Our doctor was not allowed to examine the women who by now was in major distress because the 50 other Arabs who turned up from the local village said our doctor wasn't a muslim and couldn't touch the women. After two hour's when the women was nearly dead and with pleading from the husband they agreed to let the doctor try to help. Any way she delivered the baby in the sand outside the facility with the whole village looking on and arguing with each other. Just one problem she had twins and that is not allowed for some reason, so they wanted our doctor to kill the baby right there and then. To say all hell broke loose would be an understatement. In the end we put the women with her two babies and placenta on a stretcher at gun point along with threats to shoot everybody unless they left with both babies.....They left but one of those babies was not going to live for long.

It really is a sad thing to see. I grew up Catholic and walked away form the whole experience with nothing more than the teachings of Jesus as meaning anything of actual substance.

Image
But to see so many thousands in my own town who simply relinquish thinking (their own minds) to a person who says "see this book, the books says this and that, do as I tell you." Obviously this varies to degrees but in all instances you see these mindless masses hand over all critical thinking and let one person tell them what is real and what is not, what is meant in a writing and what it could mean, etc.

I am not sure if a "moral compass" is something your born with or not. In my life I seemed to see issues often in religion classes and theology courses as well as philosophy courses. I seemed to always have a keen sense of love and what is meant by really loving others and yourself.

Image
The really scarey thing I walked away form with this experience is how it translates to all humans everywhere and how most of them would rather live in a state of mindless bliss (a la The Matrix) where they are told what to think, wear, feel, etc. etc.

I have often thought how wonderful it would be to create a "church" that taught Logic, Love and Critical Thinking but I suppose it would lack the dictating these mindless masses are seeking and lacks any promise of 21 virgins or a place in a cloud city with the old man God on his big chair in the sky.

Many humans are waking up in the west which is very positive and Asia is slowly going through these same changes. We can only hope that these empty teachings and twisted teachings by some can be fought in the mental universe by people willing to take time and exude patience in teaching logic and critical thinking of the things around them.

The only problem is under the new religious leaders there is only room for death and destruction. Agree or die no condescending or disagreement. Funny how they use sex as an incentive don't you think? (nothing new there then)All those virgins that escaped being raped by their dads or brothers just waiting to be raped by them in heaven. I hope it's not to late to wake up and smell the coffee. But I feel it will take the detonation of a nuclear devise on a major city with lose of hundreds of thousands of innocent people to bring the brain washed minds of people into focus and allow them to overcome the political correct idiots that turn a blind eye to a creeping cancer that needs medication.

Despite widespread recognition of Saudi Arabia’s abysmal record on the rights of women, religious freedom, and political liberties, the country is poised to win a seat on the Human Rights Council in elections scheduled for Nov. 12th by the UN General Assembly.

This is like Obama winning the nobel peace prize. It's a sick demented joke.

the Christians in Saudi Arabia are expatriates.
