The mainstream media love to repeat the mantra that Islam is a “religion of peace.” They need reconcile that with the horrible attack on Umar Mulinde and how he was targeted by followers of Islam. Allahu Akbar is a cry that will ring in his mind for the rest of his life.
That was the celebratory yell that the two “men” who disfigured and nearly killed him shouted once their attack was complete. There is nothing peaceful in what they did.
We’ve quit waiting for an outcry from Muslim leaders against this kind of barbarism. It is clear, whether directly or indirectly through their silence, most Muslim leaders approve of such tactics.
Umar Mulinde was a typical Muslim who hated Israel until he had a vision in a dream in which Jesus appeared to him. After that, he became a Christian and started a church in Uganda. That conversion cost him dearly.
Religious conversion is prohibited in Islam, so Mulinde was targeted. On Christmas Eve, 2011, Mulinde was attacked by two Muslims with buckets of acid.
