Christian Convert Faces Death

Adbul Rahman, a 41 year old Afghan man, was accused last month of being a Christian by his family. He may face death.

Rahman was an Afghan muslim. And, Afghanistan's Constitution is based on shariah law, which states that any muslim that rejects Islam will be put to death. The prosecutor said he would drop the charges, if the defendant would revert back to Islam, but he refused.

The judge said in an interview: "We are not against any particular religion in the world.

"But, in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law. It is an attack on Islam."
