Ethiopia: Muslim Police Join Students in Demolishing Church

ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA (Worthy News)-- More than 500 Muslim students assisted by Muslim police burned down a church in the village of Qoto Baloso, Ethiopia, on Nov. 29.

The students screamed "Allahu Akbar" as they set fire to St. Arsema Orthodox Church, which was built on land used by the Christian community for more than 60 years.

According to Inspector Mustefa Bashir of Silte Province, police had already ruined the roof after a court ruled that the church was built without a permit, but as for the razing of the church by students, we are investigating to determine those responsible.

"The actions of the Muslim police as well as the Muslim students show the growing Islamization of Ethiopia," said Jonathan Racho, ICC Regional Manager for Africa. "We urge the Ethiopian government to stop gross violations of the rights of Christian minorities in areas of the country dominated by Muslims."

  1. Praying~!

    For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10

    Save Now LORD Jesus

    Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. Matthew 24:9

    Bless These Islamics With The Knowledge Of You LORD Jesus

    But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Matthew 5:44-45

    And Save Now


    Thank You Abba Father For Answered Prayer

    This I Pray In The Holy Name Of Your Son

    In The Name Of Jesus

    I Love You LORD

    I Love You


  2. Guys don't be biased we are living in a temporary world. I have read this news on a number of Cchristian sites. It is so lame how could a religious organization publish a biased news, in the sight of Allah all human beings are equal and should be treated equally.
    Lastly, the demolishing of the above mention church is by the order of the court. The church was built recently, in addition there is no christian in the area. It was not built for religious purpose but to grab the land of the poor rural muslims of the area. When I was passing through that road to hosana 10 months ago there was no a church in the area.
