Back in 2012 Pastor Umar Mulinde was burned by jihadists for converting out of Islam and his untiring support for Israel.
Pastor Umar Mulinde was born in Uganda to a Muslim family with his father being an area-Muslim leader. But after Mulinde converted to Christianity he was attacked for his new faith. Mulinde went on record to tell his story and issue a warning to America.
Because he was raised as a Muslim Mulinde says, “I know whatever a good Muslim and a true Muslim… and a leader in Islam must know.” But once he converted to Christianity, he was hated by the Muslims in his community.
Mulinde was called out one night by a voice in the darkness. “Pastor,” the man called. As Mulinde turned to respond to the voice, half of his face was covered in acid by the man in the dark. In an effort to escape, Mulinde turned and ran for help. Half of his face and part of the back of his head was badly burned by the acid. But despite this, Mulinde still has hope.
