In Sudan, four believers from a Muslim background escaped legal persecution earlier this month. Police arrested the men and accused them of apostasy, but a judge closed their case because lawmakers repealed the apostate law in 2020.
Today, Todd Nettleton with The Voice of the Martyrs USA says these believers are far from safe. “They have been publicly identified in Darfur as apostates, as Christians, so the danger exists even outside the courtroom,” he explains.
“They have gone into hiding because of threats from radical Muslims.”
Calls for revolution led to the removal of longtime dictator Omar al-Bashir in 2019. Christians suffered severe persecution under Bashir’s rule. More about that here.
