This Little Girl Is Living in Jail Because Her Mom Is Christian…and Proud of It!Michael Harrell
When Meriam Ishag gave birth, she did so with a chain cuffed to her ankle. Her husband Daniel Wani says “she’s unhappy about that,” and understandably so…even more understandably when you know that Meriam is in jail because she is a Christian.
Husband and father Daniel is not in prison because he was never Muslim, and rarely sees his family. His last visit was a mere 10 minutes tending to his son without even seeing his wife before guards escorted him out of the facility.
“I wanted to take Martin away with me, but I knew I couldn’t. It’s not good place to be for a little boy to be. I am not allowed to spent time with them because the Sudanese officials do not recognize them as my wife and son.”
Authorities refuse to release Martin to his Christian father on the grounds that the toddler is Muslim and cannot have a Christian guardian.
Meriam does have an opportunity to be released. But it is one that she will not take.
“An Islamic Sharia judge said she could be spared the death penalty if she publicly renounced her faith and becomes a Muslim once more.” Reported DailyMail.
Meriam is standing strong in her faith in Jesus, and made a bold declaration that she would rather die than give up her faith, she will never ‘pretend to be a Muslim’ to save her life.
