Meriam Yahya Ibrahim has been released from the Sudan prison she was forced to live in with her newborn daughter & toddler son since being sentenced to death on May 15.

Meriam Yahya Ibrahim, 27, has been freed from her Sudan prison after her legal team filed for an appeal from her horrific death sentence. The mother of two was sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery and death by hanging for apostasy from Islam.

Sudan Mother Freed: Meriam Yahya Ibrahim Released From Sudan Prison

This is great news!

The Sudanese mother whose story sparked an international outrage has finally been freed from prison, along with her two children, a toddler and a newborn baby girl, reports the Daily Mail.

Meriam and her children were released after an appeals court found her initial judgement and sentencing to be “faulty,” reports CNN.

Meriam Ibrahim, 27, was sentenced to death for apostasy from Islam and 100 lashes for adultery. Even though Meriam was born in Sudan, and thereby automatically considered a Muslim by the government, she was raised a Christian by her mother. She also married an American Christian, Daniel Wani, which is where the additional charge of adultery comes from. Sudan refuses to acknowledge her marriage to Daniel solely because it is Christian.

Meriam Gave Birth To Second Child In Sudan Prison

Even though it is fantastic news that Meriam has been released, we should acknowledge the fact that she suffered greatly during her time inside the Sudan prison.

Not only was she shackled to the floor throughout the last month of her pregnancy, but she also had to care for her son, 21 months, inside the cell. His father, Daniel, was not allowed to take him because of his Christian religion.

On May 27, Meriam gave birth to her second child, a baby girl named Maya. The newborn spent her first month living inside a prison cell with her mother and toddler brother, but has been reunited with her father, Daniel, shortly after being released.

I lived in South Africa for 8 months and its genuinely horrific to think that this is the most developed country on the whole continent. I rented a car in johanessburg and got a police escort out of town because they feared for my safety! A few days before a woman was carjacked and then disembowled by a group of thugs, taking her car wasnt enough, they had to rape and torture her for hours. and this was far from uncommon.
Awful awful country. I swear these monsters are going backwards in human development. What a horrible place!

Yes, South Africa has become a disaster and the people are no better off than they were during apartheid. Law and order has completely broken down.

Its not as simple as saying Muslim is a bad religion. The Muslim’s that are shown in the press are the most extreme of the extreme. Saying all Muslims are bad and mistreat women is like saying all christens are Westboro Baptist. They are the most extreme and are portrayed as bad. Just because a hand full of people get attention for doing bad things in the name of religion doesn’t mean that the religion it’s self is bad, just that handful of people are.

The Muslim religion is really messed up.
They also don’t value their women and children.
Don’t they know the women and children are the future.
They abuse them and treat them as less then an animal.
If I was born a Muslim I’d denounce it and flee.

Honestly, Islam is a confused religion and it should be banned for the good of humanity period!.
