(Worthy News) - Bwera, a city on Uganda’s Western border with Democratic Republic of Congo, has banned open-air evangelistic preaching due to threats from Muslim clerics following the conversions of 35 Muslims.

The Anglican Church of Uganda, the Sound of Salvation Ministry, and the Church of Uganda of Bwera Custom Church held a tent revival on May 20th at which former Muslims proved the divinity of Jesus from the Koran, stirring the ire of local imams, who marshaled hundreds of Muslims to march on the local police station in a successful bid to have them shut down further meetings planned for May 25th and 26th.

“We cannot allow the Christians to use the Koran in their meetings or to allege that Jesus is the Son of God – this a serious blasphemy to Muslims,” said Muzamiru Aramanzani, head of the local Mosque, according to pastors who spoke with Morning Star News.

Despite a sizable Christian majority at 84% of the population, claims have surfaced in recent years that Uganda’s significant 14% Muslim minority has been gaining in strength due to the activities of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a Sharia-law touting rebel group that seeks to replace the Ugandan government with an Islamic State.

According to an AP report, Muslims in Uganda are claiming to have bagged hundreds of thousands of conversions to Islam—forced or otherwise—from Christianity and Catholicism in recent years.
