This is what happens when Islam and Christianity Mix…
UGANDA: In Luuka District, Muslim in-laws poisoned the infant daughter of 24-year-old Christian mother Angel Nabirye, sources said.
In Busandha village, Kiloba Parish, Bukanga Sub-County, Nabirye’s mother-in-law noted that she was eating during the day-time fast of Ramadan.
“My mother-in-law questioned me for eating food with my baby during Ramadan, and I told her that the baby was unwell and needs breast-feeding,” Nabirye told Morning Star News.
Islam does not require non-Muslims, young children or those who are ill to fast during Ramadan, but Nabirye’s mother-in-law, Nubu Kiiza, informed her son, Nabirye’s 30-year-old Muslim husband Ayubu Meddie Kamwa, that she was failing to observe Ramadan.
The following day, on the morning of June 17, Kiiza visited Nabirye.
“She brought some herbs for my baby, Saidha Namwase, which I gave her,” Nabirye said. “After three hours, the condition of the baby worsened, and I rushed her to Iganga Hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival at 4 p.m.”
A doctor immediately took several tests and found the baby had been poisoned, Nabirye said.
Nabirye’s husband, Kamwa, sent relatives to the hospital to retrieve the body for burial. They returned with the infant’s body at 7 p.m. and wanted to bury it immediately in accordance with Islamic custom, but Nabirye protested because she wanted her relatives to be present for the burial, she said.
Her husband and mother-in law were furious with her for refusing to bury the body immediately, and they along with other relatives started berating her and calling her an infidel and pagan, Nabirye said.
Nabirye’s mother and siblings, all Christians, arrived later that night. Their in-laws served them a tea that included chloroform, which caused them to fall asleep, Nabirye said. When they awoke the next morning, Nabirye’s sister discovered the baby’s body was missing, and a frantic search ensued.
Nabirye’s husband, mother-in-law, father-in-law, and an imam, Alamzan Waiswa, called Nabirye an infidel for refusing to immediately bury the baby’s body, and they started beating her, her mother and sister for disrespecting Ramadan, she said. The Muslim in-laws told them to leave, but when they refused to go, the beating continued, Nabirye said.
Neighbors intervened and stopped the attack, and officers soon arrived from Nakabugu police station.
“Nabirye had a deep cut on her face and an injured right hand, while her relatives had light injuries on the face, hands and back,” said a source who met her at the police station.
Police and neighbors searched without success for the infant’s body. Officers later arrested Nabirye’s husband Kamwa, Imam Waiswa, Kiiza and her husband, identified only as 58-year-old Suleiman, for questioning by Luuka District authorities.
