Rahaf Mohammed, Linda Sarsour, and the Question of Apostasy
And what does Linda Sarsour say about those many Muslims, including Rahaf's family, who think apostates from Islam should be killed? If she denounces that view, she would be denouncing a belief that is central to Islam. As stated by Muhammad in a hadith (Al-Bukhari 9:57): "Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him." Will Linda Sarsour take issue with Muhammad? Or if asked to comment on Rahaf's case, will she instead meretriciously offer, as I suspect, something to deflect attention such as "look, this girl was trying to get asylum, so she makes all kinds of wild charges about death threats and so on. I'm not surprised. And her little ploy worked - she's now in Canada."
