Korean Muslims Calling for Release of 23 Hostages

by Dr. D ~ July 24th, 2007

The latest deadline has passed, but the negotiations for the release of the Korean hostages continue and according to reports are in “a very sensitive phase”.

A Korean Muslim organization has joined South Korean Christians in calling for a release of the 23 relief workers. Sohn Ju-yeong, who heads the Korea Muslim Federation, said the following:

“Muslims in South Korea send an earnest appeal to our fellow Muslims in Afghanistan to help the doctors and nurses who were doing humanitarian and medical relief work in the nation return to their beloved families safely, freely and as soon as possible.”

The Korea Muslim Federation held a joint news conference on Monday, along with religious leaders of the Korea Conference on Religion & Peace (KCRP) and the National Council of Churches in Korea (NCCK), to urge the Taliban to release the hostages.

The head pastor of the Saemmul Community Church – the hostages’ home church – spoke out on Monday and emphasized that the church group was purely on a community service trip rather than on an evangelistic mission.             *Top
