Social media started a prayer plea for Thomas Uzhunnalil, 56, an Indian Catholic priest, after he had been kidnapped by ISIS-tied terrorists.

ISIS terrorists made good on a threat to crucify a kidnapped Indian Catholic priest and carried out his murder on Good Friday, the archbishop of Vienna reported.

Thomas Uzhunnalil, 56, was taken hostage by ISIS-tied gunmen in Yemen during a siege that left at least 15 dead on March 4. ISIS terrorists then threatened to crucify him, and just this past week, they did, the Daily Mail reported.

“According to our information, the extremists who attacked the elderly care home in Aden have kidnapped priest Tom Uzhunnalil, a 56-year-old Indian, who was taken to an unknown location,” one Yemen security official said, the Daily Mail reported. “We are aware that no group has yet claimed the criminal attack … but information points to the involvement of Daesh [ISIS].”

Uzhunnalil’s church initially denied reports the terror group threatened to crucify him.

“House of War: Islam’s Jihad Against the World” conveys what the West needs to know about Islam and the violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures and systems of government

But Christoph Cardinal Schonborn, the archbishop of Vienna, just told a congregation at St. Stephen’s Cathedral that Uzhunnalil had been crucified, the newspaper said.
