Two Christians from Uganda were hospitalized after radical Muslims beat them up after their presentation at a religious encounter, one of the victims reported.


Musa Kirongosa, 32, and Swidiki Buyinza, 27, of an undisclosed church in Nawaikoke, Kaliro District, were the first to speak at the Christian-Muslim dialogue organized by Muslims on the 13th of  November in Bulumba town.

Using both the Bible and the Koran, they argued that Muhammad was a false prophet, with Kirongosa asserting, “Truth is only found in Christ Jesus as the one and the only Savior for mankind.”
Angry Muslims in attendance grew rowdy before the two Christians had finished, forcing them to flee and go into hiding at the nearby home of a Christian, Buyinza said. Some of the Muslims rushed ahead to block the road leading out of the area, and about two hours later, at about 7 pm, when the area was vacated and quiet, the two Christians thought it was safe to leave.
“When we left around 7:30 pm on our motorcycle, just a few kilometres along the Nawaikoke-Bulumba road, we were stopped by Buruhan Musobya, a well-known Muslim extremist, and six other Muslims,” Buyinza told Morning Star News. “They began shouting, ‘Allah Akbar [God is Greater], these are the enemies of our prophet […]”

The attack was the latest of many instances of persecution of Christians in Uganda that Morning Star News has documented.
