Summary: 

A Christian convert from Islam has said there's a "failure across the board" to protect people in Britain who leave the Muslim faith. Nissar Hussain was speaking after the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain said people leaving Islam were experiencing extreme violence and discrimination. The Council said some were even committing suicide or self-harming because of the level of abuse they received, or feared they would receive, if they left Islam. Its words come ahead of an ITV documentary due to broadcast on 13th October which will explore the lives of converts from Islam.
