Convert to Christianity in Sudan Faces Death for Apostasy: Islamic Sharia Law.
By Murad Makhmudov and Lee Jay Walker
The international community needs to stand up to the brutal reality of Islamic Sharia Law because this legal code is neo-medieval and based on apartheid logic. In Sudan the reality of Islamic Sharia law is clear for all to see because a female Muslim faces being hanged for merely marrying a Christian male and then renouncing Islam. This reality equally applies in other mainly Muslim nations that abide by Islamic Sharia law in its entirety. Therefore, it is essential that “liberal elites” in the West stop appeasing all the time. After all, this is merely encouraging Islamists to spread this apartheid logic within the body politic of mainly non-Muslim nations.In Sudan, a female Muslim who converted to Christianity (she disputes being a Muslim) now faces being hanged based on the barbaric reality of Islamic Sharia law. It is worth pointing out that in the land of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia, that old men can marry little girls of 8 and 9. At the same time, you have Misyar marriage that basically is allowing sanctioned prostitution based on economic dominance in several nations. In other words, the morality of Islamic Sharia law is equally twisted to suit the whims of the sexual desire of men – even if pedophile, in the case of Saudi Arabia.
It is worth stating that in Somalia you have Islamist Takfiri terrorist groups like Al-Shabaab that support killing all apostates from Islam. Meanwhile, in Nigeria the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram is now kidnapping young girls and forcibly converting Christian girls to Islam. This brutal reality is shocking and can be found in other nations whereby radical Islamists are running riot. However, while Takfiri Sunni Islamist terrorists are known for their barbarity, it is clear that state sanctioned Islamic Sharia law is being left unchecked internationally. Therefore, on the one hand you have barbaric Takfiri terrorists in Somalia beheading apostates to Christianity – and on the other hand, you have state sanctioned Islamic law threatening to kill apostates in several nations.
The judge in Sudan according to AFP reports states: “We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death.”
If the sentence is carried out against this pregnant lady then it appears that this will take place two years after the birth of her child. The individual lady involved says: “I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy.”
The BBC reports: “Sudan has a majority Muslim population, which is governed by Islamic law. It rules that apostasy – the abandonment of one’s religious faith – is a crime.”
“The judge also sentenced the woman to 100 lashes after convicting her of adultery – because her marriage to a Christian man was not valid under Islamic law.”
The lady involved claims that she isn’t an apostate because she was brought up Christian but this is disputed by the judge. Therefore, with several embassies issuing their displeasure it would appear that either this reality will be utilized further – or, the fear of being killed based on free will unbalance her to convert to Islam. Either way, it is abundantly clear that Islamic Sharia law is both barbaric and based on religious apartheid.
In the 21st century you have Islamist Takfiri terrorist groups in Afghanistan and Somalia – and in a few other nations – that search for apostates from Islam to Christianity in order to kill them. At the same time, state sanctioned Sharia Islamic law supports killing apostates and ruling by fear.
