If his countrymen don’t kill him first (Broken link, active May 27, 2006) (a very real possibility). Michelle Malkin has the breaking news:
“An Afghan court on Sunday dismissed a case against a man who converted from Islam to Christianity because of a lack of evidence, and he will be released soon, an official said.”
Hallelujah! But Rahman’s life is still in danger:
“Some Islamic clerics had called for him to be put to death, saying Rahman would face danger from his countrymen if he were released.
“Earlier Sunday he was moved to a notorious maximum-security prison outside Kabul that is also home to hundreds of Taliban and al-Qaida militants. The move to Policharki Prison came after detainees threatened his life at an overcrowded police holding facility in central Kabul, a court official said on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.
“Gen. Shahmir Amirpur, who is in charge of Policharki, confirmed the move and said Rahman had also been begging his guards to provide him with a Bible.”
Apparantly he is not allowed a Bible in prison. I wonder where the Human Rights Commission, the Red Cross, and the UN are on this case? You know that the screaming would never stop if the detainees at Gitmo, for example, were denied Korans.
Let us keep our brother in Christ in prayer!
