A former Muslim was attacked with a pickaxe in Britain because he converted to Christianity.
Nissar Hussain, 49, suffered a broken kneecap, a fractured forearm and a concussion after hooded Muslims punched and kicked him and struck him with the pickaxe’s handle outside his home in Bradford on Tuesday.
“Next thing I saw was a pickaxe coming towards me.”
“On instinct I tried to cover my head with my arms but the force of the blow knocked me back and my heel clipped the kerb to send me to the ground,” Hussain added.
He said he was targeted likely because he appeared in a 2008 documentary about the mistreatment of ex-Muslim Christians.
Since the documentary was released, Hussain and his family have suffered thousands of dollars worth of damage to their vehicles and property.
“We are classed as blasphemers by some members the Muslim community,” he stated. “They call scum and treat us as second-class citizens.”
“I still do not regret speaking out in the documentary as this is an issue for converts up and down the country… I should not have to be concerned for my own safety as well as my family.”
This incident is what happens when a country not only prevents citizens from using guns for self-defense, but also rolls out the red carpet for radical extremists to flood the country.
