(Worthy News) - Fulani Muslim cattle herders have been burning the fields of Christian farmers in the northern regions of the Central African Republic.

According to Barnabas Aid, many Christian homes have been set ablaze in the process.

Troubles between CAR's Muslims and Christians were ignited after Islamic Seleka militias led an uprising in 2012; four months later, Muslims took control of the Christian-majority country. But after Seleka began a campaign of murder and rape against Christian civilians, militant anti-balaka (anti-AK 47) militias sprang up in reprisal. As a result, thousands were killed and nearly half a million CAR residents have fled their homes. But Barnabas Aid has been helping displaced Christians by providing food parcels to help meet their basic needs.

One thought on “CAR: Fulani Muslims burn Christians' fields

  1. Christians believe in love,harmony,tolerance,equality and forbearance therefore, they remain fail to stand against extremism. Is not it a time to learn defending ourselves ,not the way other use but by identifying the WRONGS among Christians. Most of the time, Christians lack unity and spiritual force,the important ingredients of the faith. This looks ridiculous that majority community is under acute fear of persecution. This is known fact that where Christians are in minority,they suffer in the hands of fundamentalist belonging to other religions or faith. Is not it necessary to re-address and revise our spiritual commitments to the Lord Jesus Christ.
