Pastor Adinani Bulwa, 42-year-old pastor in eastern Uganda was dragged out of his house and brutally murdered on the street by Muslim relatives enraged that he refused to renounce Christ. While Christianity is legal in Uganda, former Muslims who turn to Christ are frequently violently attacked by Islamic extremists in their communities or families.
Pastor Adinani Bulwa was killed on March 10 in front of his home in Muterere village, Bugiri District, MSN reports. The pastor is survived by his wife Zabiina Newumbwe, and five children between the ages of 4 to 16.
In a statement Zabiina recounted that in the weeks before her husband’s murder, the couple had been sharing the Gospel with Muslim family members, four of whom then accepted Christ. At this point, in February this year, Pastor Bulwa’s brother warned the couple to cease “misleading” Muslims to Christianity and to renounce Christ. “Two weeks later, my husband was invited to attend a family meeting [at his parents’ house], where he was pressured to recant the Christian faith, but he said he was ready to die for Christ’s sake.”
Angered at Pastor Bulwa’s refusal to deny Christ, a group of Muslim relatives stormed his home at about 9.30 pm on March 10.
