    RABAT - The Superior Council of Ulemas, the highest religious authority in Morocco, has opened the possibility for conversion to other religions, as reported on the website of Morocco World News. According to rules active in all Muslim countries, apostasy is punishable by death.

    It's also forbidden for those from different faiths to share their faiths among Muslims.
