A teenager in Tanzania was recently sentenced to two years in prison after being accused of desecrating the Koran.
Eva Abdullah, 17, converted from Islam to Christianity three years ago. Her parents disowned her after her conversion and a group of Islamic radicals in her hometown of Bagamoyo tried to persuade her to renounce her Christian faith. When she refused, they falsely accused her of desecrating a Koran.
Many Christian leaders were afraid to defend Eva because of Muslim dominance in the district.
On 26 July 2012, Eva was sentenced to two years in prison by a judge who was allegedly bribed by the Islamic militants.
