Imprisoned With ISIS

Imprisoned With ISIS

 10,000

On December 10, 2015, Petr Jašek arrived at the airport in Khartoum, Sudan, for his return flight home to the Czech Republic. But before he could board his flight, he was summoned by Sudanese security for questioning about his activities in the country—activities that, if disclosed, would endanger the persecuted Christians with whom he had met. As the questions continued and he was taken into custody, Petr realized he would not be returning to his family anytime soon.

Instead, Petr was charged with multiple offenses and imprisoned for 445 days—all for trying to help Christians who had been persecuted by Sudan’s government. Sentenced to life in prison and forced to share a cell with ISIS terrorists, Petr shares this true story of how God gave him strength, courage and a new purpose during his imprisonment.

Description

While millions in Sudan have struggled to live through extreme poverty, famine and political instability, those who follow Jesus Christ in a nation governed by Sharia Law and Islamist leaders have long faced a much harsher existence. For three decades, the Sudanese government has targeted Christians, along with those who aren’t ethnically Arab, for extermination.  

Since former President Omar Hassan al-Bashir rose to power in 1989 through a military coup and established a strict form of Islamic law throughout Sudan, his brutal regime intimidated, arrested, imprisoned and tortured Christians. It also demolished and bombed church buildings, seeking to further Islamize the country. 

In 1993, the United States listed Sudan as a state sponsor of terrorism for harboring members of Islamic terrorist groups, including Osama bin Laden. In 2005, the country’s long-running civil war came to a halt with a peace agreement that resulted in southern Sudan becoming an independent country in 2011. To quell civilian uprisings, Bashir enlisted Arab militias to terrorize civilians in the western Darfur region. As a result, roughly 300,000 people were killed and four million more were displaced.  

Before the country split, Bashir orchestrated the deaths of nearly two million Christians in southern Sudan, including the Blue Nile region and the Nuba Mountains. In the Nuba region, the Sudanese military dropped more than 4,000 bombs on Christian villages, churches, schools and hospitals to erase all traces of Christianity. Believers there have been treated as criminals and often arrested, tortured, falsely charged and punished with the death penalty.  

In March 2009, The Hague-based International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for sixty-five-year-old Bashir—the first warrant ever for a sitting head of state. He was charged with committing war crimes and crimes against humanity, including mass extermination, deportation, torture and rape in western Sudan. The following year, a second warrant was issued, this time for masterminding genocide in the province of Darfur.  

Despite the warrants, Bashir continued to lead Sudan and terrorize Christians until April 11, 2019, when the Sudanese military ousted the dictator following several months of protests.  

This story takes place inside Bashir’s Sudan a few years before the despot lost his grip on the nation.
