By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent
(Worthy News) - Two British converts from Islam have been plagued by the persistent presence of mobs outside of their home in Bradford.
According to Barnabas Aid, after Nissar Hussain and his wife converted from Islam to Christianity in 1996, they have been harassed by local Muslims.
"We are quite simply living as prisoners in our home and as soon as we try to venture outside we are jeered at, mocked, and sworn at," said Hussain.
Years of persecution had forced Hussain's family to move from their home in 2006. But after the couple participated in "Unholy War" -- a BBC documentary that highlighted the plight of Muslim converts to Christianity -- the family has again been singled out for abuse.
Unfortunately, in the UK converts from Islam get little help from the police, local authorities or even other Christians. In fact, the only official advice they received was to "stop trying to be a 'crusader' and move out."
