Radical Islam’s influence in Uganda has grown by more than 7% in the last three years, and many Christians within the majority Muslim border regions are facing severe persecution, especially those who convert from Islam.
When the restaurant she owned and operated was burned six months after she became a believer, Faridah assumed it had been an accident. But earlier this year, the two rooms she rented in a home were also burned, and neighbours mentioned smelling petrol.
Faridah lost everything she owned and now suspects her relatives were responsible for the fires.
After being abandoned by her husband, Faridah’s relatives had been helping raise her six children. But when she became a Christian, they cursed her and told her she would never have peace as long as she was a Christian. Her landlord is also demanding reimbursement for his loss.
