KAMPALA (Worthy News)-- After two Muslim sisters in Uganda left Mohammad for Christ, their uncle beat them and locked them in a room without food for days, according to Morning Star News.

Nabagabana Fatuma, 14, and her sister Namwase Aisha, 16, required medical care after their Muslim uncle abused them at their home in Nasenye village. The uncle had taken custody of the sisters after the death of their divorced father five years ago.

The sisters had attended a worship service at a local church where its pastor prayed for them to become Christians. But when the pair returned home and told their uncle what happened, he sequestered them both and then made arrangements for them to be taken to an Islamist group for re-indoctrination. But while he was away, the pair were freed and taken to a "safe house".

    Namwase Aisha died at 5:30 p.m. at Iganga Hospital in eastern Uganda, where she had been recovering from malaria after being admitted on March 2. Sources said a doctor had also determined she needed further treatment for a head injury suffered on Feb. 1, when her uncle beat her and her sister with a wooden rod and locked them in a room for nearly three days without food.
