UK Man Who Converted from Islam to Christianity Attacked with Pickaxe

Attack-compressed(The Mirror) This is the shocking moment a man is brutally assaulted in what police are treating as a religious hate crime.

And dad-of-six Nissar Hussain says he has been leaving in fear for years since converting from Islam to Christianity.

The 49-year-old suffered a shattered knee cap and broken hand when two hooded thugs battered him with a pickaxe handle outside his home.

Mr. Hussain converted to Christianity in 1996 and said problems started after he and his family appeared in a Channel 4 TV documentary about mistreatment of Muslim converts in 2008.

    I am shocked and appalled! Never have I seen…..
    Wait, what? Islam again?

    And Muslims want us to believe that they are a religion of peace????????? We need to Pray for the ones who leave Islam and come to the Christian Faith. This proves their that their lives are in danger when they leave Islam.

    Islam and liberalism/socialism are the two cancers infecting the entire world.

    There is NO redeeming value/virtue to either.

    Pickaxe handle, not pickaxe – that would be a lot more serious. TBH, although this is pretty moderate by Islamic standards, it has to be pointed out that if a Christian in a US Red State converted to Islam, he would not be treated any more kindly.

      That is only an assumption or your own opinion, true Christians would never beat up anyone for a choice they have a God given right to make whether it is the right choice or not in the Child or God’s mind. You won’t see Christians that truly follow Christ and His entire word from Genesis through Revelation hurt another, it is not in a Christian’s nature once they become born again from above and are given a new heart. Yes, Christians have a right to defend themselves and their families against harm but never to attack another unwarranted, this would not please God in the least. There are those who call themselves Christians but are not, they pick and choose scriptures to fit whatever they want, God rejects them. I was so mean and hateful before becoming a born again child of God, now that hate and meanness is gone so when you make comments like that, you should emphasize that is only your opinion for it’s not the truth. I praise God for revealing the truth of who He is to this muslim that has become a Christian and with open arms he is welcomed into the family of God and I will pray for him and his family.

        “True” Christians? Have you ever heard of the True Scotsman Fallacy? Christians, especially Fundamentalist Christians, can be vindictive to the point of acts of serious violence. Not as bad as Muslims, but not good.

        The idea that all Christians are loving and kind is a lie, plain and simple. Being a Christian does not make you a good person by default.

          I was a violent man before I came to Christ, but I can attest to you that I no longer resort to violence nor do I want to….

          • Josey

            amen George, same as me….The test of a true child of God is that they will bear the fruit of the Spirit of God, anyone who claims to be a Christian and yet does not have the fruit of God’s spirit is a liar, the more fruit a Christian bears God will prune them so that they bear more fruit so you cosmic can use that argument again and again about those who claim to be Christian and yet hurt others are false Christians but these are true Christians: Galatians 5:22-23 vs22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. They have the heart of God to do good things for others .Also, take one of the fruits is love, love speaks the truth and speaks of repentance and how to get right with God through Christ and to turn away from sin for Jesus is the only way to God and sometimes it seems harsh as this generation and their political correctness and their need to be coddled and spoiled fills their minds and causes them to think that Christians who speak God’s word in truth are racial bigots which is a lie from satan in order to keep them bound and true hateful bigots, whereas true followers of Christ speak what is truth so the captive can be set free and find Christ so as not to be separated from Him for all eternity for Christ is the only one who lived a perfect sinless life and no one is allowed into Heaven except through Christ so if that truth hurts your feelings or seems to harsh and you prefer to be coddled and have your ears tickled, then you will be w/out God for all eternity! Get it through your head that those who do not exemplify the fruit of the Spirit are only claiming to be Christian for their own gain, satan who has been around for a lot longer than we uses all kinds of people to defame Christ’s name but as I said before, God’s word gives us the true test of who belongs to Him and who does not by their actions and words and they do not obey Christ or submit to God’s will. God is benevolent in all He does and so His followers in the power of His might follow in His footsteps for He leads us as the Good Shepherd.

            I think you cosmic in all your arrogance know very little, you like to cause others to think you know so much but that’s a lie the evil one has instilled into you for none of us know much compared to the omnipotence of a all knowing God our Creator. You continually use these examples over and over to defame the name of Christ and to justify your rejection of Christ but one day you will face God all by yourself and you’ll bow your knee and if you have not repented before that day, not one excuse or justification will be spoken out of your mouth, He will say to you, “depart from me”. Your only redemption is through Christ while you still have breath in your body but once you physically die, you will either have accepted Christ and live with HIm for all eternity or you will be on the left side and Christ’s angels will throw you into hell.
            Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
