CWA Rejoices in the Release of Afghan Christian

Concerned Women for America (CWA) is grateful that a court in Afghanistan has dismissed the case of Abdul Rahman, a man who was on trial for converting to Christianity over 16 years ago. The court’s decision to drop the case resulted from a reported “lack of information.”
“Christians around the world have been praying for Mr. Rahman, and we’re grateful God answered those fervent prayers today,” said Jan LaRue, CWA’s Chief Counsel. “We praise the Lord that this man’s life has been spared. Mr. Rahman should be free to live his life for Christ, unashamed and without fear of religious persecution. We pray God’s protection for him and other Christians who face such persecution.
“America will be watching intently to see how the courts in Afghanistan rule on future cases dealing with religious conversions. All Afghans should be free to choose their religion and to proclaim their faith in Christ, rather than being forced to accept the Islamic faith.
“Muslim leaders accused this man of being insane and mentally unfit to stand trial. Since when does being a Christian discredit your sanity? Muslim leaders were undoubtedly following the model of atheist Soviet regime by using the insanity claim on this Christian man. Just like America worked for freedom for the Soviets, we will continue to work for freedom in Afghanistan.”
Concerned Women for America (CWA) is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization.
