A British citizen who converted to Christianity from Islam and then complained to police when locals threatened to burn his house down was told by officers to “stop being a crusader”, according to a new report.Nissar Hussein, 43, from Bradford, West Yorkshire, who was born and raised in Britain, converted from Islam to Christianity with his wife, Qubra, in 1996. The report says that he was subjected to a number of attacks and, after being told that his house would be burnt down if he did not repent and return to Islam, reported the threat to the police. It says he was told that such threats were rarely carried out and the police officer told him to “stop being a crusader and move to another place”. A few days later the unoccupied house next door was set on fire.
Su informe, Ningún sitio que pueda llamar mi casa, señala que los apóstatas del Islam están sujetos a "grandes y variados abusos a sus derechos humanos". Añade que en países como Gran Bretaña, con grandes poblaciones británicas en una cultura occidentalizada, la obligación de mantener una identidad musulmana es intensa. "Cuando las identidades son precarias, su refuerzo tomará siempre una forma agresiva".
