Pakistani Christian in Derby brutally attacked by Muslims

UNITED KINGDOM – Pakistani Christian left hospitalised after attack by Muslims

A Pakistani Christian from Derby was beaten up on the evening of 20 October, for displaying a cross and Remembrance Day poppies in his car, he said. Tajamal Amar described his attackers as Pakistani Muslim men and explained, “I am not a brother [to them]. I am a kaffir [a derogatory term for non-Muslim]. They left me for dead. They hit me as if they were playing on a football pitch … I am Christian. Because of the poppies on my car, because of the cross in my car, I have been hit.”

The 46-year-old dad and food delivery driver suffered internal bleeding, extensive bruising and a broken nose that left him hospitalised. Tajamal told journalists it was not the first time he has been targeted. “Several times, local [Muslim] Pakistani people in Derby have taken offence from the fact that I am Christian. When they first find out, many stop talking to me. My wife and I have often been shunned. I fled from Pakistan to escape violence such as this, but more and more the same violence is coming into Britain. Freedom of religion should be the right of any British citizen but today I feel unsafe, even then nothing will stop me going to church.”
