Muslim Family Has Shocking Reaction When Deaf Daughter Embraces Christianity

With all of the conflict in the world that stems from matters of religion and beliefs, it would be nice to assume that a family’s home would be the last place that someone would have to worry about religious persecution. As Christian Today shares, that’s not always the case.

A disturbing story has emerged from Central Asia about a young deaf girl named Saida. Her family follows the Muslim faith, but Saida went against the grain and embraced Christianity. When her family got wind of it, they had a shocking reaction. The girl was mercilessly beaten by the family and wound up in intensive care.

"When the police came, the police saw it was her family beating her and they said, 'Well, this is a family issue, so we won't get involved.'" The family then realized they kind of had immunity to continue to beat her, so they continued to do so to the point where she had to be brought to the hospital in intensive care," explained Rob Myers, president of DOOR International, an organization that assists deaf people around the world by teaching about Jesus Christ and Christianity.

While members of the local church in the unnamed country have plans to offer up a safe space for the girl, the family has indicated they will contact the authorities. All the while, relatives have threatened to beat and even kill her if she does not return to Islam. It’s unclear if the family is facing any kind of charges, but it certainly doesn’t sound like that’s even on the table at the moment.

"What's different for deaf believers is many times parents are unaware of what's going on in their child's life. They may be meeting with people, they may even be signing with friends about Scripture, and their parents have no idea because most parents of deaf children don't actually sign," Myers continued.
