Afghans accused of Christian conversion
November 28, 2010
TWO Afghans accused of converting to Christianity, including a Red Cross employee, could face the death penalty, a prosecuting lawyer has warned.
Musa Sayed, 45, and Ahmad Shah, 50, are being detained in the Afghan capital awaiting trial, the prosecutor in charge of western Kabul, Din Mohammad Quraishi, told AFP.
"They are accused of conversion to another religion, which is considered a crime under Islamic law. If proved, they face the death penalty or life imprisonment," Mr Quraishi said.
He said Sayed, who works for the International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) had already confessed and there was "proof" against Shah.
The ICRC's spokesman in Kabul, Bijan Frederic Farnoudi, confirmed Sayed's arrest and said the detained man had worked for the organisation since 1995.
Farnoudi said ICRC representatives had visited Sayed in prison "in accordance with its mandate".
"During such visits, the ICRC has met Mr Musa (Sayed) several times and intends to visit him in future," Mr Farnoudi said.
Sayed and Shah were arrested in late May and early June, days after local television broadcast footage of men reciting Christian prayers in Farsi and being baptised, apparently in a house in Kabul.
The government launched its own investigation and suspended two aid groups, Norwegian Church Aid and Church World Service of the US, after the television program reported the two men were proselytising, which is illegal in the devoutly Islamic country.
Several Afghan MPs have expressed their anger over the case, with one from western Herat even calling for the men to be dragged from their homes and publicly executed.
The Afghan constitution, adopted after the fall of the hardline Islamic Taliban in late 2001, forbids conversion to another religion from Islam and in theory can sentence those found guilty to death.
But Afghanistan has not executed anyone for the crime in recent history.
The last conversion case to be tried in Afghanistan is believed to be that of Abdul Rahman, an Afghan man arrested in 2006 for converting to Christianity.
He was eventually released and granted refugee status in Italy, after a wave of international human-rights protests.
Ok Ok Ok I know, we were not really trying to Civilize Afghanistan and various other Muslim Lands, we are simply trying to eliminate the threat to the west from all of those “good Muslims”, those followers of the Islamic ideology who, no less a man than Americas very own Hussein Obama described as members of “one of the Worlds great Religions”
The “Coalition of the willing” did not go into Iraq and Afghanistan to convert its inhabitants to follow any of the majority of the worlds populations Religions, the invasions of these Terrorist harbouring Muslim lands was to simply negate their ability to reach into the Majority Non Muslim World to commit their vile Koran inspired acts of terrorism. Having said that is it reasonable to now allow any Afghani citizen to be executed by the Afghani Government for converting to Christianity?
The Taliban are at least honest with the west with their stated desires to enslave the world via their terrorist cult of Islam, these Muslim arse clowns that are the “Afghanistan Government” should come clean and declare that their only point of difference with the Taliban is that it is a dispute over who is in charge of dispensing the will of allah as opposed to opposing the will of allah, both organizations believe in the same Godless ideology their only point of difference / disagreement is as to who will impose their shared ideology.

Just ONE member of the above Military Forces losing his or her life in this Godless land ruled by savages is one too many.
The reality of having MUSLIMS who live in the USA, UK , Australia and other Judeo Christian democracies demanding that the manifestations of the same perverted Religious/Social/Legal structures that resulted in them running away from their country of birth to seek safe haven in Western Judeo Democracies, be imposed upon their various Judeo Christian Western Democracy host country, is all the evidence needed to prove the Islamic refugee HOAX.
Allowing Islam and it’s followers a voice of ANY kind in ANY Western Judeo Christian Democracy, is the same as allowing Adolf Hitler to help plan the D Day invasion,the liberation of Berlin or to allow Isoroku Yamamoto to plan the Battle of Midway for the US Navy.
When are the Leaders of the Judeo Christian Western Democracies aka the CIVILIZED World who are prepared to defend the people who elected them?
