Justin Welby endorses Christian Muslim forum call for dropping Mariam Yahya’s death sentence

Justin Welby endorses Christian Muslim forum call for dropping Mariam Yahya’s death sentence

Mariam Yahya, a Sudanese Christian sentenced to death and pregnant with her second child, is receiving support from the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby through the Christian Muslim Forum:

Archbishop Justin, who is Patron of the Christian Muslim Forum, has spoken in support of a statement from the Christian Muslim Forum about the death sentence passed in Sudan on Mariam Yahya, a Christian woman who is pregnant with her second child.

The Archbishop said: “The Christian Muslim Forum brings together both leaders and scholars from the range of Muslim and Christian communities in this country. This statement therefore has weight and deserves to be widely shared. I wholeheartedly endorse this call from the Christian Muslim Forum for the death sentence against Mariam Yahya to be dropped.”
