Boy killed his mother over her conversion in Israel
Muad Hib, a 27-year-old man living in northern Israel, was charged with the murder of his mother, Rasha Muklasha, after her conversion from Islam to Christianity, International Christian Concern reports.
The two reconnected after the passing of Hib’s father. Hib set up a time to meet his mother on August 5, with the intention of killing her. After picking her up, Hib strangled his now-Christian mother, killing her and disposing of her body, burying it near the Jordan River.
Prosecutors say that Muklasha’s conversion was the primary motive for the murder, which had greatly angered Hib. Hib has been arrested and now faces charges for the murder.
