“A Muslim convert to Christianity narrowly escaped death when he was attacked by a Muslim fanatic on September 15 in the city of Jos, central Nigeria.”
The “fanatic” no doubt believed in this statement of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Sahih Bukhari, volume 9, book 84, no. 57).
“‘It was around 5 p.m. on Monday in my store,’ Mr. Lucky Kadri told Compass from his hospital bed, where he is recovering from injuries. ‘I decided to pack up my things because it was already getting late. As I bent down, I felt a blow on my head and I fell down. My assailant was tearing at my stomach with a sharp object. Before I knew it, I saw my intestines spilling out.’ Police arrested Kadri’s assailant. ‘I have not seen him before, but I have been told that he confessed that he was sent to kill me because I left Islam to become a Christian,’ he told Compass. A Christian since 1984, Kadri said Muslim leaders regularly visited his shop to convince him to renounce Christianity and return to Islam. He believes his refusal to recant provoked the attack.”
