Meriam at the Vatican

In this photo provided by the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, Sudan’s Meriam Ibrahim, holding her daughter Maya in her arms, is shown meeting Pope Francis in Rome on 24 July 2014

The Italian Deputy Minister for Foreign Relations had led the secret negotiations with Sudanese government to allow for Mariam and her kids to leave Sudan.. Certainly, without Sudanese travel documents or papers; she had lift Sudan on board of an Italian Government plane.. The same day, she was received and blessed by Pop Francis at the Vatican..
Her US citizen and wheel-chaired husband Dani; was never the focus of news or photographs..!
Sudanese government was not available for comments, yet it was clearly a part of trade off between Sudan and European Union.. Al-Basheer Regimes seeks any scores at any prices..

I kept wondering on the momentum Marian represents; to deploy senior Italian official to accompany her, on a 30K $ voyage, who was immediately scheduled upon arrival to meet the Pop..
Many freedom fighters and victims of oppression had no chance to be recognized at such a high level celebrations..

 There is a strong bad smell in the air..!!

When the Sudanese court issued their verdict it was not precisely tailored to punish Mariam; as Media complicity pointed.. Courts are not the venue to create Laws or Jurisprudence.. The issue of Apostasy is historically controversial across Muslim countries, with few cases that applied capital punishment.. Regretfully, Sudan had earlier witnessed couple of verdicts; which had cost lives..

If the celebration was meant to condemn Sudan; this is politics..

If the celebration was meant to twist arms with Muslims, it is dangerous game to be played, which will only add fuel to concurrent tension and unrest..

 Coexistence can only be built by defusing religious mismatches..!!
