Descendant of Muhammad converts to Christianity -- but faces threat to life if forced to return to Turkey

medium_bloodyCross.2.jpgNo Compulsion In Religion Alert. By Wolfgang Polzer for the ASSIST News Service, with thanks to all who sent this in:

A Turk who claims to be a descendant of Islam's prophet Muhammad has converted to Christianity while living in Germany.

But Sedar Dedeoglu, of Luedenscheid, now faces a threat to his life if he's forced to return to Turkey, and is seeking help from German authorities.

Dedeoglu, who is involved in Christian outreach programs among Muslims, has been receiving death threats from Muslims unwilling to accept his conversion. His relatives also regard the apostasy as shameful.

If Dedeoglu is returned to his native country, he very likely would be killed, his lawyer says.
