A 38-year-old Ugandan Pastor was left unconscious when a stone suddenly hit him in the forehead during an open-air debate on Christianity and Islam in Kuwait, Butaleja District
Pastor Tom Palapande was holding a two-week evangelism in June, which included discussions on Islamic and Christian Scriptures, the Trinity, and Jesus as the Son of God.
The last subject infuriated Muslims, who began throwing rocks at him, chanting “Allah akbar,” or “God is great.”
“A big stone hit the pastor’s forehead, and the stones as well injured three other church leaders who were close to the pastor, Palapande told the news outlet that he regained consciousness in a clinic and was later transferred to a hospital in Mbale.
“The first three debates took place without incident, but in the fourth debate about Jesus as the Son of God, a sheikh found himself ill-prepared and left in the middle of the event,” Morning Star News reported.
Adding, “Embarrassed Muslims in the crowd responded by throwing stones at Pastor Palapande and shouting the jihadist chant, “Allah akbar,”
In his submission, Pastor Palapande told Morning Star News: “This is not the first time when Muslims attacked us, especially when they lost debates in Nasenye, Nabiganda, and Bumadanda.”
“I was beaten up, and it was falsely reported in a local newspaper as well as the local radio station that I am disrespecting the religion of Islam. This is a calculated move to tarnish my name.”
He appealed for the government of Uganda to protect him and to stop Muslims from assassinating his character.
“The perpetrators of this heinous crime must be found and punished to the fullest extent of the law,”Pastor Palapande was quoted as saying.
