Muslims in Uganda were upset that a Christian pastor planned to build a church next to their mosque, so they decided to stop him from doing so — in a way that was anything but representative of the “religion of peace.”
Pastor Bongo Martin of the Pentecostal Church Ministry planned to erect a church in Nansololo village near Mazuba. The land was near a mosque, and Muslims had recently tried to take the land from the ministry, officials told Christian News.
When church leaders resisted the effort to overtake their land, the Muslims decided to become a little more aggressive in getting the message across that they did not want Christian neighbors.
They built a fence, complete with barbed wire, around land that included acreage belonging to the PCM.
Martin, 32, was notified of what was happening Wednesday and went to the site in hopes of working something out.
When he asked the Muslims why they were encroaching on their land, the imam told him, “We have told you many times that we do not want the church to be located near our mosque. Your church has been taking our members to your church,” the news outlet reported.
A Muslim named Abdulhakha Mugen then drew his sword and struck a blow to Martin’s neck, knocking him down. Mugen kept attacking Martin and decapitated him. The Muslims then threw Martin’s body into a nearby river.
Martin had a wife and two children.
Whether Mugen was arrested for this barbaric killing was not immediately reported, but we can only hope he pays for this heinous crime.
This is just one example of brutal attacks against Christians in the area.
In an area east of Uganda, five Christians who lived in a predominantly Muslim village were reportedly poisoned after pesticide was put in their food after a Bible study. One of those Christians was a pregnant mother.
