Kyrgyzstan: Muslims Beat Ex-Muslim Almost to Death for Converting to Christianity

Kyrgyzstan: Muslims Beat Ex-Muslim Almost to Death for Converting to Christianity

APR 11, 2019 8:00 AM BY ROBERT SPENCER5 COMMENTS

The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)

A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence.

This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: “The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-‘ashriyyah, Al-Ja’fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.”

Qaradawi also once famously said: “If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today.”

“Kyrgyzstan: ‘We are going to lock you in prison and you are going to beg me for your life,” Barnabas Fund, April 9, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A Kyrgyz man who was almost beaten to death by three angry Muslims after converting to Christianity has become a victim yet again.

Eldos, who is in his mid-20s, was held captive for ten hours in a prosecutor’s office in the capital Bishkek by the lawyer of his attackers.

The lawyer tried to force Eldos to drop the charges against the three men who viciously attacked him in October.

“We are going to lock you in prison and you are going to beg me for your life,” was just one of the threats made by the lawyer during the latest ordeal.

Eldos and his Christian uncle, fearing for their lives, fled to another country two days later.

The persecution of Eldos began on 17 October 2018 when the three Muslim extremists broke into a house in the village of Tamchi, Issyk-Kul, looking to beat up his Christian uncle.

Instead they found Eldos and asked if he was a Christian too. When he said he was they punched and kicked him to the ground.

They shouted at him that he was a kaffir (a derogatory term for a non-Muslim) and that he had betrayed Islam (the classic Islamic view of Muslims who leave Islam).

Then they tried to force him to say the shahada (the Islamic creed), which is considered conversion or re-conversion to Islam, but Eldos bravely refused.

They then repeatedly kicked him in the head as he lay helpless on the floor, fracturing his jaw and smashing his teeth and leaving him semi-conscious.

They then threatened that they would come back to kill him if he did not leave the village by the morning….
