Christian Convert’s Body Mutilated by Family in Uganda
ICC Note: A Christian man, who had converted several years ago, was recently attacked and killed by unknown assailants. When his body was returned to his family, who are Muslim and hated his conversion, it was reportedly mutilated before being buried in a small grave.
05/08/2018 Uganda (Christian Post) – Muslim villagers have mutilated the corpse of a Christian man in Uganda who converted from Islam, stabbing pins and making cuts in his body. His wife revealed that her life has also been threatened if she holds steadfast to her Christian faith.
The widow, Fatuma Muluuta, told Morning Star News on Friday that her husband, Muluuta Kuzaifa, became a Christian two years ago, but was ostracized by his Muslim family.
Kuzaifa, Muluuta, and their two children were sheltered by a pastor who wasn’t named for security reasons. Two years later, they decided to return home, but had to leave for Kampala, the country’s capital, after they received threatening messages.
On April 1, Kuzaifa was attacked when returning from work by yet unidentified assailants.
“I heard him shouting for help, and immediately some neighbors rushed to the scene, and we found him bleeding with head injuries,” the widow recalled.
