I already answered this question, and it depends. The Normans of Sicily killed a number of Muslims when they first conquered it, as it happens in all conquests, from the Emirate that ruled it but then tolerated them to different levels. You can say Christian rule wasn't that tolerant since Islam disappeared from Sicily and no Muslims lived there by the 13th century, but it still took a couple of centuries for a full Christianisation to occur, implying again a limited level of toleration.would muslims be killed by Christians in the medieval Christian countries's land?
In the case of Christian Castillians and Aragonians of the Middle Ages (the ones that would later unify Spain), they also tolerated Muslims to varying degrees in their lands. They even had Muslim soldiers serving in their armies, but other times they would persecute Muslims as well due to uprisings, insurrections or being associated with certain political enemies. However, again, by the Reconquista in 1492, whatever tolerance that existed was eliminated with the Spanish Inquisition that interrogated, tortured, imprisoned and executed thousands of Muslims, and when that process stopped, they still were treated worse than when Castilla and Aragón were their own separate kingdoms, eventually being expelled completely a century later.
