Uganda: Muslim Boys Come to Christ Then Must Flee for Their Lives

Two boys who converted to Christianity from Islam in Uganda have been forced to flee for their lives due to persecution.

According to ChristianToday.com, the two boys, aged 16 and 17, were driven out even by their own family members.

The boys found refuge in the home of a Christian man, but that man ended up having to flee with them after Muslim extremists attacked and destroyed his home and drove him out.

“I started receiving threatening messages in my phone accusing me of converting the boys to Christianity, as well as housing them in my house without the parents’ permission, but I did not take it very seriously,” the man who gave the boys shelter told Morning Star News.

Apostasy against Islam is a serious crime in Uganda and is punishable by death.
