Zanzibar: Moderate Muslims Spread Allah’s Message By Weekly Intimidating Christians On The Way To Church

Under pressure to convert, Zanzibar Christians concerned for future

Dodoma, Tanzania, May 21, 2014 / 02:17 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Members of the small Christian minority on the Tanzanian islands of Zanzibar are suffering intimidation and now fear that their children will be coerced to convert to Islam, one resident said.

“If we go to church on Sunday, we have to go through a crowd of people who often try to intimidate us,” a Catholic man speaking under the pseudonym Matthew Limo told the Catholic pastoral charity Aid to the Church in Need.

The houses around Limo’s church belong to Muslims.
