As a Muslim, I am shocked that Meriam Yehya Ibrahim was sentenced to death for the sole reason of changing her faith from Islam to Christianity ["Forced faith can't ever be real faith," Opinion, June 6].
What shocked me even more was that the government of Sudan, where Ibrahim resides, supports such a heinous punishment. The Quran explicitly states that there is no compulsion in religion. The Quran clearly prohibits forcing someone to convert to another religion and rejects any justification for it.
I support Ibrahim's decision to stick to the faith she chose. I hope that she receives her freedom very soon.
