Apostasy carries the death penalty in Islam. But the mainstream media does its best to obscure that. This Telegraph story never says that the death penalty for apostasy is mandated by Muhammad and Islamic law — but it is. Until the West has the courage to confront the root causes of things like this, they will keep happening.
A Christian doctor has been sentenced to hang for apostasy, or the abandonment of religion, by a court in Khartoum, the Sudanese capital.
Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, 27, who was born to a Muslim father but brought up a Christian by her mother, was convicted on Sunday and given three days to recant her faith or face a possible death sentence.
“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged,” Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa told Mrs Ibrahim, addressing her by her father’s name, Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah.
