September 11, 2013
An Afghani legislator is calling for the execution of nationals who convert to Christianity on foreign soil, according to Mohabat News, an Iranian Christian news agency, and the Fides news agency.
“Afghani citizens continue to convert to Christianity in India,” said Nazir Ahmad Hanafi, a member of parliament. “Numerous Afghanis have become Christians in India. This is an offense to Islamic laws, and according to the Quran, they need to be executed.”
“The presence of the US in Afghanistan results in the conversion of Afghans to Christianity,” added Abdul Latif Pedram, another member of parliament. “The United States' long-term plan is to attack Afghani culture.”
