ICC Note: 

Even a country with predominantly Christian population and a constitution that uphold religious freedom, can have Christian persecution. Habiba is a a newly converted Ethiopian Christian who was beaten by her Muslim husband and hospitalized. She and her 3 children have sought refuge  with Christian neighbors.  Even though the law is on Habiba’s side in this case, she and most women in Ethiopia fear reporting it to the police for fear of retribution from husband (who may not get sentenced) and his  family or the community at large.  Pray for Christian women in Ethiopia who are left with no means to support themselves when their husbands disown them for converting.

When Habiba’s husband discovered she’d become a Christian six weeks earlier, he locked all the doors and beat her with sticks. He told her she should die for leaving Islam.

Fortunately, her neighbours intervened and rescued her. She needed three days of hospital treatment for a deep gash in her head and bruising.

Habiba put her faith in Christ in Bokulu Boma last month after speaking to an evangelist. After that, her devotion to Islamic rituals waned. Her husband grew suspicious and launched his attack after others at the local mosque confirmed his fears.
