Convert family from Islam to Christianity assaulted in Bradford.

In Bradford, Nissar Hussain and his family, converts to Christianity from Islam, were assaulted: his car was torched, bricks were thrown through a window and dogs set on his children. An estimated 3,000 converts to Christianity in the UK are routinely abused, harassed and persecuted by Muslims in their own communities and have to flee. The Times, 5/2/2005
