AFGHANISTAN: Abdul Rahman faces death penalty

Abdul Rahman (pictured left) was put on trial in Kabul last week for the “crime” of converting from Islam to Christianity and faces the death penalty for refusing to return to the Muslim faith.

According to the Ariana TV , Abdul was asked in court, “Do you confess that you have apostacised from Islam?” The defendant answered, “No, I am not an apostate. I believe in God.”

He was then questioned, “Do you believe in the Quran?” Abdul responded, “I believe in the New Testament, and I love Jesus Christ.”
