Iran: Jailed Christians face exorbitant bail demands

Of course! It is the kuffar’s place to pay the jizya! (Cf. Qur’an 9:29)

An update on this story. “Iran: Detained Christians face exorbitant bail demands,” from the ASSIST News Service, March 13 (thanks to Twostellas):

Five members of the Church of Iran denomination appeared before a judge at the 14th Branch of the Revolutionary Court in Shiraz, Fars Province on March 10 and were handed exorbitant bail terms.

According to Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), Mohammad Roghangir, Surush Saraie, Eskandar Rezaie, Shahin Lahooti and Massoud Rezaie are charged with disturbing public order, evangelising, action against national security and an internet activity against the system.

Their trial was expected to commence on March 10; however, during their court appearance, Judge Sadati set bail for Mohammed Roghangir at US$ 200,000, while the others were asked for US$ 80,000 each. No date was set for the continuation of the trial.

CSW says that the five Christians were among seven people arrested on 12 October 2012 during an evening raid by the security services on a house in Shiraz where a prayer service led by Mr Roghangir was underway. They were initially held in Plaque 100, the Intelligence Ministry’s notorious detention centre, before being transferred to Adel-Abad Prison, where they are held separately from other prisoners….

    House churches are a necessity in a country where apostasy is punished by execution.

    Many conversions to Christianity are reported anecdotally, but the conversions to atheism are rampant (and undeniable) among those who have grown up after the ayatollahs put a choke hold on the country and its wealth.

    I am not a Christian, but I know that the more these barbarians persecute their victims, the more attractive the Christian message will become in the eyes of countless Iranians.
