‘The villagers kept asking my father if he is ready to forsake Christ. He reiterated every time, ‘I will not deny Christ … I will continue to believe till my last breath,’ said Urawn’s son. Previous to the torture, villagers had forced Urawn to attend their worship, in which they sacrificed an animal, his son said. They forced a portion of the sacrifice down his throat and made him drink fermented liquor, he said.
