You have heard about parents homeschooling their children, but have you ever heard of kids being home jailed?
A Christian in Zanzibar (a part of Tanzania) shared the following information about youth from Muslim families who have left Islam to follow Christ.
“Many youth have been denied permission to go to school just because they changed their faith. Many have been denied access to go outdoors just because they have decided to believe in Christ. If they can’t escape, that will be their lifetime home jail.
“Their parents force them to stay inside with the condition that they must return to Islam quickly if they want freedom of movement. The Muslim parents call this love, because they believe the youth ought to be punished severely, so just keeping them at home is ‘love.’”
Pray that entire families in Zanzibar will come to Christ and encourage one another in their new faith.
