Evil dad sets fire to own daughter, 24, after overhearing her talk about converting from Islam to Christianity – The Sun

A DAUGHTER has been recovering in a Ugandan hospital after her Muslim father allegedly burned her for converting to Christianity, it's reported.

Rahema Kyomuhendo, 24, is said to be spending another month at the Mbale Regional Referral Hospital after suffering serious injuries on May 4. 

Her father Sheikh Hussein Byaruhanga, a spiritual teacher, was said to have used fuel from a jerry which was soaked on the woman and then ignited her.

She was left with horrific burns to her legs, stomach, ribs, neck and part of her lower back after he overheard her talking about converting to Christianity. 

According to Morning Star News, Ms Kyomuhendo had accompanied her dad on a business trip 300 miles across the country, in Mbarara District.

They then went to stay with his sister after becoming trapped due to the coronavirus outbreak.

She phoned a Catholic friend of her father while listening to a Christian radio station and became “convicted”, it was reported. 

Speaking to the newspaper from her sick bed, she said: “She explained to me about Christ and the way of salvation, and I got convicted and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. 

“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.”

Ms Kyomuhendo claimed her dad shouted at her aunt that she had converted to Christianity and he was going to kill her. 

Morning Star News said it was the latest in a string of attacks against Christians in Uganda where 84 per cent of the population is Christian, with Muslims making up just 14 per cent.
