News – Muslim violence

November 2007
Muslim violence

 A recent Dispatches programme on Channel 4 TV claimed to have uncovered evidence of the ‘violence and intimidation facing Muslims who convert to Christianity in Britain’. In the programme, Dispatches reporter Antony Barnett met former Muslims – including a family driven out of their home and a convert whose brother was beaten close to death – who said they were living under the threat of reprisals from their former communities.

 The investigation uncovered a network of churches supporting converts from Islam who have to worship under a veil of secrecy. The programme estimated there are as many as 3000 Muslims who have converted to Christianity living in Britain.
