Kigali (Rwanda):
In one of the largest reversion cases of Christians to Islam, a Rwandan pastor and his entire 480-member congregation have reverted to Islam, as the world fastest growing religion expands its presence in the African continent.

Salim Mikdad, a former pastor, reverted to Islam after being convinced into it by Muslim scholars, Nigeria Watch reported.

Later on, he managed to convince his entire 480-member congregation to take a similar decision on August 25.

After switching their faith, the church was turned into a mosque. The latest incident comes amid a series of similar conversions in Rwanda.

Being a predominantly Christian country, Rwanda has seen a gradual rise recently in its Muslim population.
