Twelve Christian men were arrested in Sudan on Saturday, for interacting with Muslims and sharing the Gospel.
International Christian Concern reported that the 12 men from Darfur were handcuffed and arrested by officers from the Sudan National Intelligence and Security Services due to their interaction with Muslims in the predominantly Islamic region.
“The arrests were done at Nyala market while the young men were interacting with Islam adherents, building rapport for witnessing, when Sudan’s security authorities surrounded them and led them to the police station, handcuffed,” said ICC’s source, the Rev. Kuwa Shamal.
“Some of the arrested men are disciples that I baptized in 2015 when they left Islam and converted to Christianity. The detainees have been doing a recommendable work of sharing the Good News in Darfur, and we pray for their immediate and unconditional release,” Kuwa added.
A lawyer who represents Christians in Sudan, who wasn’t named, said that the case is a “total breach of the law of the land,” as the believers have not been given a chance to explain what happened.
Christians have been arrested and clashed with the government in Sudan on multiple occasions this year. In August, A Sudanese court dismissed criminal charges brought against a group of Christian leaders who claimed that the government attempted to take away their denominational control.
