    Yes, it is absolutely a hate crime - and the police should be doing something about it. You can be they would be heavily involved if it were the other way round.

    In a minute someone will be along to claim that as this is in the Mail it's all made up ...

    Ah but seriously, changing your mind, religion, opinion, political affiliation, seems to be so disapproved of. We're all so rigid these days... a place for everything and everything in its place.

    Converting away from Islam is seen as a heinous crime - the idea being that you had the one true faith and now you have deliberately and knowingly turned away from it. Some verses of the Q'ran dealing with apostasy indicate the death penalty, and this has been carried out in some countries in the past.

    No excuse for the sort of behaviour being shown here, though is it....?

    Definitely hate crimes and investigated as such by the relevant police forces.
    And I say forces for a reason.
    There is more back-story to this than the Mail article implies as a cursory search will indicate

    Not that anyone will see this post for a while (if at all)
