This thesis aims to reveal the idea of freedom of choice and equality of rights reflected in the main character also followers of the religious sect and how the role of government to resolve the religious conflict. Three questions emerge as the problems of this thesis. The first is what are the types of freedom described in the story. Second, what are the things that the main character does to gain freedom for herself and other Ahmadiyya followers. Third, what are the effects of the main character struggle to gain freedom. In order to analyze these three problems, a social approach developed by Aguste Comte (1842) is used in which this approach emphasizes the important function of literary works is to convey the events occurring in the social life. To be able to answer the three questions in this thesis, the theory used to support the analysis is the theory of freedom from Adam Kokesh (2014). The theory helps identify how the idea of freedom of choice is reflected in the main character and other Ahmadiyya followers. As conclusion, the writer found several findings. First, the kinds of freedoms used by Maryam in the story are Internal Freedom, External Freedom, Political Freedom, and Spiritual Freedom. Second, based on the analysis there are two kinds of actions conducted by Maryam to get the freedom first is going to the governor's office and second is send many letters to the governor. Third, some of the effects that occurred after Maryam tried to gain freedom were for her self she became someone who believed that Ahmadiyah sect was true even though the government had banned the Ahmadiyya because it was considered heretical, for the Ahmadiyya followers they had not got what they wanted that is back home.
