Ibrahim is charged with adultery on the grounds that her marriage to a Christian man from South Sudan is considered void under Shari’a law, for which
Mariam is the daughter of a Christian woman and Muslim man. She was raised Christian after her father left. However, Sudanese law mandates that children born to Muslim fathers are considered Muslim.
When I read the news about Mariam, I couldn't sit back and do nothing so I started this petition. People around the world rallied to raise awareness to #bringbackthegirls kidnapped Nigeria, I hope the world will also stand up for Mariam.
The fact that a woman could be sentenced to death for her religious choice, and to flogging for being married to a man of an allegedly different religion is abhorrent.
Call upon the government of Sudan to respect the right to freedom of religion and stop the execution!
