Worthy Christian News » Afghanistan: Execute Converts to Christianity

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN (Worthy News)– A member of the Afghan Parliament recently recommended that Muslim converts to Christ be executed to stop the growth of Christianity among the Islamic nation's citizens both within Afghanistan's borders and abroad, according to Aleteia.

"The Afghan people continue to convert to Christianity in India," Nazir Ahmad Hanafi told the assembly. "This is an affront to the Islamic law and according to the Quran they have to be executed."

According to Fides, another member of the Afghan Parliament, Abdul Latif Pedram, said conversions to Christianity were caused by the continued presence of American forces in Afghanistan.

As a result, Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi, president of the Afghan Parliament, has condemned all proselytism in Afghanistan and ordered the National Committee for Safety to monitor any further Muslim conversions to Christianity.

The Islamic Council of Afghanistan had previously notified President Hamid Karzai about the growing number of Christian foreign workers and their increasing influence on the Islamic nation.

    Blessed are they when men shall revile and persecute you for righteousness sake for great is your reward in heaven.
    I pray that a Damascas road experience will suddenly awaken the chief of sinners and be converted and go and share the AGAPE LOVE of The ONE TRUE AND LIVING SAVIOR who is merciful and just to forgive and cleanse a broken and a contrite sinner from all unrighteousness.
    The effective and fervent prayer of His people availeth much. He hears and answers the cry of His people.
    Deliver your people from evil Jesus.
    I pray that those who repents and accept Jesus they and their household will be covered with the BLOOD OF JESUS and let no weapon formed against your people prosper in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
    Vengence is Mine saith the Lord!
