Muslim in Uganda Kills Daughter for Leaving Islam, Sister Says

KAMULI, Uganda (TAB, Morning Star News) — A Muslim man in Uganda killed his 17-year-old daughter with a blunt instrument after learning she had left Islam, sources said.
Nanvunani Shamimu and her sister Nawudo Hasifa recently turned to Christianity after they shared the same dream of a man dressed in white clothes who directed them to be prayed for in the church.
The sisters both accepted Christ after visiting United Believers Church in Kawaga, Kamuli District, and area Muslims who spotted them entering the church told their father.
That evening, he began beating the girls, according to Hasifa. “My sister was hit somewhere near the neck. … He tried to wake up my sister, but there was no response. I knew she was gone.”
Hasifa, 19, was able to escape and seek refuge among Christians. According to a pastor, Hasifa is traumatized over her sister’s death and needs prayer.
