Fears held for Christian convert

January 11, 2012


THE husband and friends of an Iranian woman missing from Dandenong for almost a month fear she has been abducted by Muslim hardliners because of her attempts to convert Muslims to Christianity.

Mandy Ahmadi disappeared from her home on the afternoon of December 16, taking her phone but leaving her handbag, money and credit cards.

Her husband, two sons, and other relatives - including a brother released from a detention centre five days later - have heard nothing since.




Mandy Ahmadi.
THE husband and friends of an Iranian woman missing from Dandenong for almost a month fear she has been abducted by Muslim hardliners because of her attempts to convert Muslims to Christianity.

Mandy Ahmadi disappeared from her home on the afternoon of December 16, taking her phone but leaving her handbag, money and credit cards.

Her husband, two sons, and other relatives - including a brother released from a detention centre five days later - have heard nothing since.

The Ahmadis, themselves refugees from Iran, arrived in Australia in 1999.

Both were Muslims but Mrs Ahmadi converted to Christianity five years ago and her husband, Nathan, a year later. They co-founded an agency four years ago with the Cornerstone church in Dandenong to help refugees.

Yesterday, Mr Ahmadi struggled to voice his fears but said he was terrified and thought that abduction was the most likely cause of his wife's disappearance.

"It is so painful. My heart and my brain are frozen. I just don't know," he said.

Islam, strictly interpreted, mandates death for adults who leave the religion, and there are many cases of Iranian converts being killed, both in Iran and in Europe.

The same penalty may be applied to those who seek to persuade Muslims to leave their religion. While there are accounts of Muslims who converted being beaten in Australia, The Age is not aware of any claims of killings.

Mr Ahmadi said his wife had twice gone away for a few days to escape pressures, but had told her family what she was doing. "Now I am scared. She has not contacted me, the children, or her relatives."

Pastor Danny Nalliah, of Catch the Fire Ministries, yesterday sent an email to his mailing list calling for "urgent prayer" for Mrs Ahmadi and her family. He said he had known the family for eight years and they took a leading role in helping Muslim asylum seekers find accommodation, jobs and household appliances.

"Through their love for these people some Muslims accepted Jesus," Mr Nalliah said.

He and Catch the Fire were the subject of a complaint that they vilified Muslims in a 2002 seminar on jihad, upheld by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal but reversed by the Supreme Court.

Yesterday, he told The Age Mrs Ahmadi "really stuck her neck out" in trying to convert Muslims and that her husband was sometimes very

worried for her. He said he was not suggesting asylum seekers had abducted her, but that her zeal had come to the attention of militants, possibly in Iran itself.

An Oakleigh police officer confirmed police were investigating her disappearance but gave no details.

He said the police were following several lines of inquiry, and confirmed that one possibility was abduction by Islamic militants. "We are treating it as a missing person inquiry but are investigating other possibilities," the officer said.

Mr Ahmadi said he dropped his wife off at home in the early afternoon of December 16 after a "pamper morning" at Cornerstone for refugees, then went to the supermarket with his eldest son.

That was the last time he saw her. When he returned 45 minutes later his son had gone out, and his wife was not home but he did not worry then.

After school he took his youngest son to Chadstone shopping centre to pick up presents they had put on layby. He called Mrs Ahmadi and left messages several times.

On Sunday, December 18, he confided his fears to leaders at his church, CityLife, who said that because she had been missing 48 hours he should go to the police.

"The next step, the police told me, is to record an appeal to go on television."

Which religion preaches death penalty to its apostates? Does Christianity teach death to those who left Christianity?

These sort of evil and mindless butchering happen not only in Australia but all over the Western world. Only a few months ago a father, mother aided by their son killed their 3 daughters for bringing shame, it's the finest example of Islamic honour killing reported to date! Read here:

Everyone should know that it is a Crime against Allah to leave Islam and anyone who is instrumental for encouraging such a move is worse than Satan and should be killed.

Those who do not know this deserve the penalty they receive.

elleXO, yet Christians can leave their faith without fear of any prosecution let alone being murdered. But our residents Islamofacists, Tanga and her ilk would have us believe otherwise. They insist that Christianity is as violent and as intolerant as Islam.

They should substantiate their claims with either Biblical text or real life incidents. But they can't because they are not true.

It just proves that they are no better than trolls. To speak without knowledge is a sin in Islam.

What is interesting is that we do not have "Born and bred Muslims" defending Islam, but "Islamic Apologists" who know little about Islam who are arguing for Islam. But because they are really ignorant about Islam, they lose every argument about Islam or they generalise with no means of authentication for their arguments.

And little do they realise that without them, we will have no reason to show them up. You notice that real Muslims stay away because they have been told " That if they have little knowledge of Islam to Shut Up." Which is wise, because those with little knowledge do more harm than good for their faith.
