“If the crime is not cited in the criminal code, then the case has to be referred to the Islamic Shariah law.” And while Hamas-linked CAIR and allied groups gull ignorant non-Muslims into thinking that the Oklahoma and Tennessee laws against Sharia are discriminatory and unnecessary, people like Shoaib Assadullah may offer a different perspective.
“Afghan convert: execution could be near,” by Michael Foust in the Baptist Press, March 1:
WASHINGTON (BP)–An Afghan man in jail for converting from Islam to Christianity says in a handwritten letter that he has been beaten and likely faces the death penalty for his conversion — and he is requesting that people follow his case.
The letter from Shoaib Assadullah, 23, was smuggled out of prison and posted on International Christian Concern’s website. According to ICC, Assadullah was arrested Oct. 21 in Mazar-e Sharif after he gave a Bible to a man who turned him in. During a Dec. 28 court hearing Assadullah was given one week to recant Christianity or face the death penalty, but the U.S. and other governments put enough pressure on Afghanistan authorities to spare his life, ICC reported. He is in prison in Mazar-e Sharif.
Assadullah believes his life is still in danger.
“My case is supposed to be sent to the court shortly, because the prosecutor has the right to hold a case only for 30 days,” he wrote, alluding to his Dec. 28 court appearance. “The court’s decision is most definitely going to be the death penalty for me, because the prosecutor has accused me under the Clause 139 of the criminal code which says, ‘If the crime is not cited in the criminal code, then the case has to be referred to the Islamic Shariah law.'”…
