Police arrested Nadarkhani in October 2009 on charges related to his work as a pastor. A court found Nadarkhani-a husband and father of two children-guilty of apostasy against Islam and sentenced him to death by hanging. Nadarkhani, 32, appealed to the Iranian Supreme Court, where justices demanded he recant his faith. The pastor refused, saying: "What should I return to? The blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?" When the judges said he should return to Islam, Nadarkhani's reply was simple: "I cannot."
