A Iranian Christian convert from Islam has been released from prison where she had been held for over four years.

Mission Network News reports that Maryam Nagash Zargaran was charged with being a danger to national security and imprisoned four years ago.

She was kept in Iran’s Evin Prison, which is known for its harsh conditions. This was the same prison where Saeed Abedini was kept.

Iran is listed as number eight on the Open Doors World Watch List which ranks the worst nations to live as a Christian. In a Muslim country like Iran, converting from Islam is not looked upon favorably.

These converts often face severe persecution. Any Christian actively sharing their faith is viewed as a threat to the state.
