Pastor: Threats Against Rifqa Serious

We need to continue to pray for Rifqa Bary, the teen who ran away from home, in fear of her life, after she converted from Islam to Christianity. I truly believe she is very much in danger. Her father is a very devout Muslim with ties to a very radical mosque. I don’t believe he will allow this perceived “insult” she has caused him to go unpunished. For Rifqa this means, at best, a life of forced marriage and abusive servitude, or at worst, a horrible “honor killing” death.

A former Muslim who is now a Christian pastor is convinced that 17-year-old Christian convert Rifqa Bary, if returned to her parent’s custody, would be on the first plane back to her native Sri Lanka.

Pastor Jamal Jivanjee has talked with Rifqa personally about her story. He also attended several of the case hearings both in Florida and Ohio. In statements she made both to Jivanjee and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Rifqa claimed the family began making plans “to deal with her” after they found out she had become a Christian.

The pastor is fearful of what would happen if the young girl was returned to her parents, and they took her back to Sri Lanka.

“To have her dealt with in a very systematic way under Islamic law could mean killing [her]”, explains. “He [Rifqa’s father] had threatened to have her put in an institution because they said she’s crazy. There were also plans in the works for a forced marriage.

“So lots of people believe that if the court were not to take this threat seriously and she was to be sent home before her 18th birthday, I believe that they would be on the first plane out of the country with her,” he concludes. “That would be very detrimental.”
