A Muslim dad attempted to burn his daughter to death… after finding out she had converted to Chrisitianity.
Rehema Kyomuhendo, a Ugandan woman, shared her story with Morning Star News.
Morning Star News reported that Kyomuhendo, 24, had begun listening to Christian programming on the radio back in March.
After calling a Catholic friend on May 4 to talk about religion, she decided to convert to Christianity.
“She explained to me about Christ and the way of salvation, and I got convicted and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior,” Kyomuhendo told Morning Star News, in a phone interview. “As she was sharing Christ with me, I was so overjoyed, and my father heard my joy and woke up, came from his bedroom furiously and started beating me up with blows, slaps and kicks.”
Upon finding out about his daughter’s plans, he threatened to kill her–even opening a gas can and attempting to burn her in her bed.
Kyomuhendo suffered severe burns on her leg, stomach, ribs, back, and neck. She’s already spent nearly a month in the hospital.
