Man forced to flee his home after converting from Islam to Christianity

A father-of-six has been forced to flee his home under police guard after he said he suffered ‘years of persecution’ for converting to Christianity.

Nissar Hussain, who converted from Islam 20 years ago, was hospitalised after one attack when two men, armed with a pick-axe, left him with a smashed kneecap.

Last week, he and his family left their home in Bradford, West Yorkshire, to a safe house.

Mr Hussain said: ‘My family are distraught and extremely traumatised to be leaving. But when your life is at stake there is no other choice.’

He added that the harassment and violence escalated after he appeared on a Channel 4 documentary about the mistreatment of Muslim converts.

He points the finger at sections of the Islamic community. [Metro.co.uk] Read more
