A Christian woman in Uganda was feeding herself and her baby during Ramadan, and her Muslim mother-in-law poisoned her baby to death in order to punish her. As we read in one report:
A female infant in Luuka District in Uganda was poisoned to death by her Muslim in-laws after her Christian mother ate during the daytime fasting period of Ramadan, according to local sources.
In an interview with Morning Star News, 24-year-old Angel Nabirye said her mother-in-law Nubu Kiiza asked her on June 16 why she was eating food during Ramadan. The Christian mother explained that her baby was sick and needed to be breastfed. Although non-Muslims and sick young children are not required to fast during the holy month, Kiiza told Nabirye’s husband Ayubu Meddie Kamwa that his wife failed to observe Ramadan.
The next morning, Kiiza visited Nabirye and brought herbs for the sick baby. Unfortunately, the infant died three hours after the Christian mother gave the herbs to her child.
“She brought some herbs for my baby, Saidha Namwase, which I gave her,” Nabirye told Morning Star. “After three hours, the condition of the baby worsened, and I rushed her to Iganga Hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival at 4 p.m.”
After some tests, a doctor reportedly concluded that Nabirye’s baby died of poisoning.
