Once upon a time, there were no Muslims in this area of the Philippines, only Christian. However, as soon as Muslims started moving into town, they immediately built a large mosque right next to the local church and demanded Christians to give them their land and leave. When the Christians said no, the Muslims took a machine gun, found the local pastor of that church, and brutally murdered him:
Perfecto Padilla, 52, a dedicated church elder, was resting in a hammock just outside his house in Sultan Kudarat, Philippines, when the gunmen on board motorbikes came and peppered him with bullets on Sept. 11, a Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) report says.
Naomi saw what happened, and she immediately ran to her father, crying and screaming for help.
A pastor named William, who was visiting a church member nearby, heard the scream and immediately went to provide assistance. He brought Perfecto to the nearest hospital, but the church elder was dead on arrival.
“Our father was a good father. He never did anything wrong. Why has this happened to him?” she asked.
People who knew Perfecto said he was a faithful follower of Jesus and a dedicated church elder.
The VOM representative noted that the village where the Padilla family lives was once a peaceful place. That was during the time when there were no Muslim residents living nearby yet.
But now, the Muslims have come to the village and even built a mosque very close to the church. The VOM representative said the new Muslim settlers have been trying to force the Christians in the village to sell their property.
Following the Muslim incursion, nearby Christian villages have been attacked by gunmen, prompting some Christian residents to evacuate.
The VOM representative said Perfecto’s murder could be part of the Muslims’ scheme to drive away Christians in the area so that they could grab more land. (source)
Yes, in the eyes of the Muslims, he did so something wrong. His crime was being a Christian.
This is happening all around the world each day, and if the West does not stop the massive Muslim invasion of their nations, then Christians here too will suffer like him.
