Iraqi lawmakers deny the bill that will allow conversion from Islam to Christianity
To permit a free will of worshiping God as a christian converting from Islam once your of 18 years and above, was the bill the Iraqi Parliamentary have turned down in a vote of 131 – 51.
The Iraqi Law has always stated that no Muslim under any circumstance is allowed to convert to Christianity. And have solidified it as a bill to permit citizens who are willing to convert to Christianity arose. The bill would have permitted Christian children in this situation to reconvert to Christianity at the age of 18, as was once permitted in Iraq and still is permitted in the autonomous region of Kurdistan.
Bishop Rabban Al-Qas exclaimed his disagreement to the movement against a willing conversion and freedom against Christianity in Iraq saying “Such a mentality has nothing that is human. Not only have they taken homes and property from Christians, but now they also want to take their willpower, hope, freedom of religion and freedom to choose for the future."
