Mauritania Journalist Sentenced to Death for Apostasy

A court in Mauritania has sentenced 28 year old journalist Mohamed Cheikh Ould Mkhaitir to death for apostasy for criticizing Prophet Muhammed. According to Reuters, the journalist was sentenced by a court in the northwestern city of Nouadhibou for an article he published almost a year ago, questioning some of the decisions Prophet Mohammed took during holy wars.

Some folks saw the article which he posted online and appeared on a number of websites and called for his arrest. He was arrested on January 2nd 2014 after the article sparked street protests and has been in custody ever since. When he appeared in court, he pleaded not guilty, telling the court that it was 'not his intention to harm the prophet' but he was still found guilty and sentenced to death under Sharia law. The prosecutors recommended that he be shot to death.



AFP reported that the blogger fainted when the ruling was read out in court yesterday Dec. 25th. He was revived and taken to prison. His lawyers say they will appeal the sentence. 

According to AFP, Mauritania hasn't executed a prisoner since 1987, and has not given a death sentence for apostasy since it gained its independence from France in 1960.

Awwww! See how muslims take their religion seriously but we Christians take the name of the lord our God for granted. Proper research will show, what he did doesn't even merit strokes of the cane but he gets death! But some idiot will open his bloody shitty mouth and compare GEJ to Christ!

Sad....and you would think the court has moderate Muslims as judges and lawyers ....so if Islam is a peace loving religion ,why does stuff like this still happen....why can't Mohammed the prophets actions be questioned especially for one trying to have some meaning about his or her faith.... it is sad ,sad,sad and just stokes the flames of fear. Religion is supposed to be an internal reassessment of oneself with God's plan and nobody's business.Islam is as I gather one of them. This is a shame

This Muslim religion never cease to amaze me. After they will say their religion is all about peace. Why dont u allow Allah to judge him. So someone cant leave a free life anymore and even change his religion at a later time ie if he likes? That was how they almost killed the other lady for marrying a Christian + the bokos. Pls i wanto understand truly what muslim religion stand for. Mtchewwwww>>>> Walks away.
God is watching!

I plead for mercy from Mauritania. Only God who gives life has the sole right to take it. They should spare his life. 2014 has seen too much blood shed. He should be warned and forgiven.

Mind you genuine Christisns are Godly and not religious so for u to generalise n conclude that Christians r not that serious is wrong. Please it's a stupid idea to sentence anyone to death for blaspheming a mere man...mere mortal. For me i hav not seen any Christian that takes the name of our Lord for granted o.....

Anonymous said...

Like it is so daft that ppl who go about killing and saying the quran supports itshouting allah akbar cannot be sentenced to to death but just blasphemy against a mere man is leading to death sentence......hypocrisy is terrible.....praise Jesus for salvation!! If u dont hav Jesus sincerely u are missing out....cos He said any that comes to Him...He shall in no wise cast out

Anonymous said...

Will be much better if people really practise what they preach and openly condemn acts of wickedness like this....just for danish cartoons some were vexing and killing now.....the problem is they focus too much on d little things which shld b ignored but d major things which ridicule their faith like boko al queda taliban...they dont focus as much on those to deal with them....God hav mercy on us and save this man in Jesus' name....Amen

My brother that is the different
Our own God love us that he came and died for us to redeem us
But their own gods is a vampire,drinker of blood. Can you emagine a god that you must kill fellow human to enter into his paradise.a god that delight in shedding human blood
If you are a Muslim by now common
sence should make you ask a question how will this your gods who has no mercy.who hate peace.cry of innocent children don't move him.
Always happy to see blood
Howbdo you think that his Paradise will be.
You better accept Jesus into your life now before it is too late
If God open your eyes and you see where people that died as Muslim are
You will not gamble with your life.
No one can enter into Paradise without Jesus.the Bible said and your Quran confirmed it

Anonymous said...

Wait, are you saying it's right to sentence him to death? Because it sounds more like you're admiring that kind of practice

God did not bring Muslim to man
It was the devil that brought it
Muslim is pure Warcraft
They worship the Queen of heaven the wife of Satan. Very wicked demon.
Immediate you begin to worship her.
You have no mercy again. Something is trigger inside them.that want to see blood.
They love bad new of shedding blood
As they here this story now some of them can not eat again until they drink the blood of the man
Please Christian all over the world pray for them ..They must not die in their sins
Christ did for them also
Show them love of our Christ. Remember our own God is love.

FOR EVERY FREEDOM OF SPEECH, THERE IS LIMITATION. YOU CANNOT SAY YOU HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ABUSING, INSULTING, ACCUSING, INSTIGATING, AND TALKING BAD/EVIL ABOUT A PERSON. YOU CANNOT SAY YOU HAVE A FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THEN DOWNGRADING PERSONALITY OF AN INFLUENCED MAN. ALL WHAT HE (SAW) WAS BY COMMANDMENTS OF HIS LORD AND DESTINY OF HIS CREATOR TOO.

An article about some one who lived about a thousand years ago leads to some one been sentenced to death. Mohammed killed lots of people all in d name of holy war ( forced every one in Medina to become muslims or death sentence).
Am not surprised that Muslims still do DAT. # mumu religion with blind folowers.

@Annonymous, a world without Islam will be a doomed one. And to y'all insulting Islam, I would say it's better you keep your mouth shut if you don't know what Islam teaches rather than judging the entire muslim community by the misdeeds or say exaggerated actions of very little few.
Just to let you know. ..........

I really don't understand why we Christians wld chose to be so inconsiderate and intolerant of other humans..what is happening to this man is wrong..very wrong..but it doesn't give u d right to bash another person's religion.. A few extremists or even a quota of 50% of extremists doesn't define an entire people..think before u talk..and remember What wld Jesus do? We all some Muslims who are plain old good people and wld never hurt any 1and Christians who are assholes.
