Indonesia: evangelists sentenced to 3 years in prison

 

Kashfi and Jalaudin, two Christian brothers, were sentenced to three years in prison on August 2, 2013, after being convicted of “evangelizing Muslims,” Voice of the Martyrs reports.

On March 20, 2013, their home was attacked by an angry mob of about 200 Muslims. Police stopped the attack on their home and then arrested the two brothers.

The brothers were convicted despite their lawyers’ insistence in court that the trial violated their human rights. Five other families associated with the brothers’ ministry were forced to leave the area for their own safety. Release International has provided support to help these families resettle elsewhere. Kashfi and Jalaudin, along with others in their team, have led more than 100 Muslims to Christ. They plan to appeal their conviction.
