Meriam Ibrahim

Following unanimous condemnation from British political leaders over the death sentence and 100 lashes imposed on Meriam Ibrahim, under-secretary Abdullahi Alzareg at Sudan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs claimed that Sudan guaranteed religious freedom and was committed to protecting the woman (CLICK). His claim that Sudan guarantees religious freedom is a blatant lie. For decades Sudan has persecuted non-Muslim tribal peoples such as the Nuba. Sudan demanded the men be circumcised and convert to Islam. The men refused and took up primitive arms. Sudanese jets bombed their villages. Sudanese soldiers captured their women, raped them and forced them into concentration camps (CLICK). Let's hope he is being more honest about the fate of Meriam Ibrahim. Shown is a photo of her on her wedding day (2011) combined with a photo of her in prison holding her newborn baby (2014).
