Afghan Christian ‘likely to be released soon : official

“An Afghan Christian facing possible execution for converting from Is-lam was likely to be released from jail “soon,” a senior government official said following huge Western pressure over the case.
He is likely to be released soon,” the official said, adding there would be a top-level meeting on the matter Saturday.

Abdul Rahman was arrested two weeks ago under Is-lamic Sha-ria law and faced a possible death sentence in a case that has attracted widespread condemnation, especially from the United States.
Afghanistan’s Supreme Court said Thursday it was trying to find a “good solution” to the case, the first of its kind here, including persuading Rahman to revert to Is-lam.

Sha-ria law, on which the Afghan constitution is partly based, rules that conversion away from Is-lam must be punished by death if the accused person fails to revert.”

Well sweet friends, Now is the time to wake up and dust off our state of complacency
This is only an indicator of things to come.

    As of now, it looks like Rahman will be released. But what do happens in the future, when other Muslims convert? This is still a big question and a huge potential problem. Afghanistan needs to realize what true religious freedom means.
