A pastor in Uganda brought Muslims to Christ from his preaching. This angered many Muslims. One day, five Muslims took the pastor and murdered him with a sword. Here is the report:
Islamic extremists in eastern Uganda tortured a pastor before brutally murdering him with a sword because he brought a number of Muslims to Christ and refused to sell land for the building of a mosque.
According to Morning Star News (MSN), in July, 38-year-old pastor Robert Bakulubanywa of Bubulanga Victory Church in the Kibuku District, was on his way home from a church gathering “when a band of Muslims killed him near his house”.
“They grabbed him, then tied him up and cut him with very sharp pang [sword],” local residents told the outlet.
Bakulubanywa’s wife revealed that Muslims in the area had threatened the pastor a number of times due to the large amount of youth converting to Christ.
“The Muslims had issued several warnings to him to stop converting the Muslims to Christ, especially the youth,” she told MSN. “For over a month the Muslims have been pressuring us to sell a piece of land to them for the construction of a mosque, but my husband refused.”
She revealed that she first sensed something was wrong when a Muslim neighbor approached her and urged her family to be “very careful and leave the Muslims alone.”
Despite such warnings, Bakulubanywa continued to minister to the local community. On the day of the pastor’s murder, his wife became very worried when he failed to return home by 9 pm.
“I telephoned a neighbor who had accompanied the pastor, and he informed me that some five Muslims stopped them on the way and started questioning Robert on several issues, including taking their young boys to church. The talk got tense, and one of them tightly got hold of him. The neighbor then took off for his life, leaving my husband struggling with the gang.”
