The Agony Goes On
In Egypt one way through which Christians are forced into converting to Islam is through abducting Christian girls and forcefully marrying them to Muslim men. Then the Muslim men argue that because the girls are married to them, the girls are now Muslims. This story reveals one such case of forceful conversion.
October 24, 2007 Egypt (Watani)–Yet another Christian underage girl has been reported missing.
Nora Ayoub Sanad, aged 17, left home on Monday 17 September 2007 to escort her brother and two sisters to school as usual but she never returned. Her family waited till almost 2:00pm and then started calling her friends asking if they had seen her, but no-one knew anything about her whereabouts. Suspicions turned towards their neighbour, 23-year-old unemployed, Mohamed Ahmed Ali known as Mohamed Adidas, since he also mysteriously disappeared around the same time. The father, 50, a tyre repair man and mother, 38, a house wife, went to talk to the young mans mother who denied any knowledge of the whereabouts of the daughter. When the father threatened to go to the State security, Mohameds sister intervened telling her mother to call the uncle telling him to let them go and not to carry out their plan.
