The shocking story comes via Jihad Watch:
This is the moment a father-of-six was battered by hooded thugs with a pickaxe in an attack he claims was sparked by his move from Islam to Christianity.
Nissar Hussain, 49, suffered a shattered knee cap and broken hand when he was attacked outside his home in what police are treating as a religious hate crime.
He was hit 13 times with a pickaxe and repeatedly punched and kicked when the two attackers leapt upon him from a car as he left his house in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
But now Mr Hussain claims the savage beating was the result of his move away from Islam, and says him and his family have been forced to live “under a climate of fear”.
Mr Hussain, a nurse, said he became a target after he converted to Christianity in 1996 and his family appeared in a Channel 4 TV documentary about mistreatment of Muslim converts in 2008.
“I think multiculturalism has failed, I think David Cameron’s Big Society has failed and I think there is two laws, one for them and one for us.”…
A hadith depicts Muhammad saying:
- “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57).
The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated:
“The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-`ashriyyah, Al-Ja`fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.”
