It’s absolutely horrible that this mom was put in prison for converting from Islam back to Christianity, but her seven children too? Just unbelievable.
Welcome to the new Iran:
CBN NEWS – In Egypt a court has sentence a woman and her seven children up to 15 years in prison for converting to Christianity.
Nadia Mohamed Ali converted to Islam 23 years ago after marrying Mohamed Abdel-Wahhab Mustafa. When he died she converted her family back to Christianity, the religion of her youth, in order to obtain an inheritance.
In 2004 she began the process by seeking help from workers in the registration office to process new identity cards for her family.
But under the new Muslim Brotherhood regime such acts are deemed illegal, landing Nadial, her children, and even the clerks in prison.
Human rights advocates said it’s a sign of things to come.
Samuel Tadros, a research fellow at Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, said conversions like Nadia’s are not uncommon, but the new Sharia-based constitution “is a real disaster in terms of religious freedom.”
