Germany – Life Imprisonment For Afghan Refugee Who Killed Christian Convert

A German court in the town of Traunstein sentenced a 30-year-old rejected Muslim refugee to life imprisonment on Friday after he murdered a 38-year old woman in front of a supermarket last year.

The Afghan man had stabbed the woman to death in the Bavarian town of Prien am Chiemsee in April 2017.

The horrible act was furthermore committed before the eyes of two of the woman's sons, aged 5 and 11 at the time, who are now traumatized for life.

The mother of two had converted to Christianity while still in Afghanistan and had lived in the German town since 2011. She was an active member of the community and was involved in helping the Protestant church.

The man's defense attorney, Mr Harald Baumgärtl, tried to appeal for leniency with the court, stating that his client had been confronted "from his earliest childhood with violence, blood and death."

The illiterate refugee explained to the court that he couldn’t bear the fact that the woman had converted to Christianity and said that she had spoken to him multiple times about her new found happiness in the religion and therefore had tried to convert him as well.

Islam not only forbids its followers to convert to other religions or renounce their faith, if a follower does convert to another religion and relinquishes Islam that is punishable by death in some countries.

The woman’s oldest son stated that he hoped the accused would "receive the punishment he deserved" and above all not be sent back to Afghanistan as the boy believed he would be "celebrated for what he had done" over there.
