The case of Mehriam who is to be executed for marrying a Christian goes on as the Sudanese still insists on carrying out the execution. CNN aired an exclusive interview of a man who claims to be her brother where he stated his full support of the sentence. Al-Samani al-Hadi says “It’s one of two; if she repents and returns to our Islamic faith and to the embrace of our family then we are her family and she is ours. We are prepared to hold her dearer than the apples of our eyes. But if she refuses she should be executed.”
Even as all eyes are on Sudan’s Court of Appeal, for al-Hadi there is no turning back.
“Why would I indulge my humanity, my emotions and incur the wrath of my Lord? That’s not how it works for us.” he says.
