IRAN. DRAFT LAW PROPOSES DEATH PENALTY FOR RELIGIOUS CONVERSION

February 5, 2008: the Iranian Parliament is reviewing a draft penal code that for the first time in Iranian history legislates the death penalty for apostasy. "The draft penal code is a gross violation of fundamental and human rights by a regime that has repeatedly abused religious and other minorities," stated Institute on Religion and Public Policy President Joseph K. Grieboski.
"This is simply another legislative attempt on the part of the Iranian regime to persecute religious minorities in the country and around the globe, especially Bahá'ís."
Two types of apostasy are set down in the legislation: parental and innate.
Innate apostates are those whose parents were Muslim, declared themselves as Muslim as an adult and then leave the faith.
Parental apostates are those whose parents were non-Muslims, who had become Muslims as adults, and then left the faith.
Article 225-7 of the code states, "Punishment for an Innate Apostate is death," while Article 225-8 says, "Punishment for a Parental Apostate is death, but after the final sentencing for three days he/she would be guided to the right path and encouraged to recant his/her belief and if he/she refused, the death penalty would be carried out."
Women apostates would be imprisoned. (Sources: AINA.org, CWNews.com, Religious Intelligence, 05/02/2008)
